Summary

This state legislative report examines teenage pregnancy and parenting from the perspective of youth at-risk with a particular focus on comprehensive approaches to teenagers at-risk for pregnancy and parenting. The report is divided into two major sections: background on the youth at-risk problem with a special focus on teenage pregnancy and a review of corresponding state legislative and program responses. These responses are described from the three perspectives of: (1) primary risk prevention, that is, preventing teenage pregnancy in the first place; (2) secondary risk prevention, which entails preventing teenagers who have already been affected by one risk-taking behavior from taking subsequent risks, such as dropping out of school or becoming pregnant again; and (3) comprehensive programs that address facets of both primary and secondary prevention. It is noted that many at-risk behaviors are linked with larger problems, such as poverty, which can be overcome with education, cooperation and a concerted effort by legislators, teachers, students and parents. The report concludes that recognition of the problems faced by teenagers at-risk is the first step in finding more and better ways to help youth. (ABL)
