Teen Parenting Program

Teen Parenting Program

The social work program has been designed to serve the community by focusing on the problem of early teenage pregnancies. The program aims to provide lessons to adolescent parents on how they should raise their children to prevent them from being influenced by poor parenting. Adolescent parents are often unprepared for the stresses that are accompanied with raising young children (Lewin et al., 2019). The paper will discuss the scope of teen pregnancies, the causes of the problem, and will also provide interventions for the specific problems highlighted. Adolescent parents should be cautious because a lack of proper care of the child from their birth to the early developmental years can lead to a lag in their growth and increase the risk of poor outcomes that can persist into adolescence.

The case study concerns an implemented social work program for teen parents, inclusive of both fathers and mothers and their children. The program was developed due to the stagnation in cases of teen pregnancies in the area over the last decade. The agency is located in an urban area and referrals are expected from the Department of Children and Family Services, other social services agencies in the area, hospitals, and local schools. The program is aimed at increasing teen parenting competence, enhancing development of beliefs aligned with compassion management strategies such as positive reinforcement, increasing knowledge about child development, and reducing teen parents stress levels (Cox et al., 2019). The participants are expected to attend eight week parenting sessions conducted once weekly to maximum benefit from the inventions of the program. The program will cover various topics: compassionate behavior strategies, stress management, effective communication with children, and child development.

Nature of the Problem

The rates of childbearing and adolescent pregnancy have remained high in America for specific ethnicities despite numerous attempts by the government and society through policies and community programs. “In 2019, the birth rates for Hispanic teens and black teens were approximately double the rate of non-Hispanic white teen pregnancies” (Hans & White, 2019). Teens in specific settings are at higher risk of teen pregnancies, for instance individuals living in foster homes. The children of teenage mothers are more prone to having low performances in school. Also, the children are highly likely to be incarcerated in juvenile correctional facilities at adolescent, to

Methodology for Problem Statement

The program is a social work program that focuses on teen parents and aims at educating them on how to take care of their children while looking after themselves as well. Adolescent parents are unequipped to care for children and the outcome can lead to development and behavioral issues that last to their children’s’ adolescence. Furthermore, ill preparation of the teen parents increases the cases of repeat teen pregnancies (Grinnell et al., 2016). This paper will analyze methods of research, data collection process, sample methods, and ethical issues during research. Teaching teen parents on how to care for themselves and their children increases maternal self-esteem and reduces the chances of repeat teen pregnancies.

The hypothesis is ‘does education of teen parents on how to cater for their children and care for their mental health have positive effects on maternal self-esteem and teen repeat pregnancies?’ The hypothesis will be used to develop guiding questions for the interview, which will determine the themes that will be developed. The goal is to assess the need and effectiveness of such a program in the community, and determine the lessons and activities that would be most effective for the selected group.

There are three types of evaluation methods for programs: qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods. The type of evaluation method employed depends on the nature of the research being conducted as it will determine the data collection form used. All methods have their unique biases and weaknesses. Quantitative methods deal mostly with numeric data whereas qualitative handles text and image data that involve themes or patterns. Mixed methods seek a convergence across qualitative and quantitative methods. The research method used is qualitative analysis since it facilitates for finding meaning of a phenomenon from the participants’ perspectives (Creswell & Creswell, 2018). The sampling method used is probability sampling, specifically simple random sampling. The participants will be selected from the urban centers’ hospital database to select the sample of teen parents aged between 16 and 19 years.

Data collection will be conducted through both focus and individual interviews. The recruitment of participants will be conducted through calling individuals meeting the criteria from the sample selected, informing them of the goals of the research, and asking if they are willing to participate. Interested individuals will be asked to meet at a venue for the individ
