Most importantly, the ability for a parent to have knowledge of their teen is a huge advantage. For example, parents of teens need to explain the dangers of sex and what sex is. Statistics also say, “The risk for teens that are sexually active to become pregnant is within the first year of being sexually active.”("Teenage Pregnancy Facts You Should Know"). Secondly, parents need to express the consequences of teens becoming pregnant. Parents of teens need to have an understanding with the teen that there are major consequences for becoming pregnant.
Teen pregnancy occurs when two teens engage in sexual intercourse, or “hook up,” and if they are not safe, it then turns into an unplanned pregnancy. As we all know, teen pregnancy is 100% preventable. However, we see still young girls becoming pregnant, most commonly in high school. These teens do not fully understand the consequences of having a child at such a young age. When you have a child, your life revolves around that child and everything you do is for the benefit of them.
A number of teens do not want to become pregnant, although some are not opposed and other has ambivalent attitudes (Bruckner, Martin, & Bearman, 2004, p. 535-557). Therefore having a healthy understanding of factors associated with a desire for pregnancy among teens, health care providers may better predict the most at risk teens. Many teenagers from the age of 15-19 carry mixed feelings concerning childbirth. Although the optimistic teens increase the risk to unprotected sex, and some were negative against the spectrum to protect against early pregnancy. A careful details study on attitudes indicates a small number of adolescents embraced pregnancy in the future; a large group of teenagers is unsure about becoming pregnant.
Many methods can be used to prevent teenage pregnancy and can decrease the birthrate significantly. Doctors and parents play a key role in teen pregnancy preventions. Since teen birthrates are rising, teens have to have access to preventions in order for it to be effective. With having permission from a guardian to engage in preventions, children can prevent themselves from becoming a parent at such a young age. Parents should properly inform their child on the subject of sex and communicate with them daily to figure out if further methods should be considered.
The answer is no, we should not stop the financial and emotional support of pregnant teens but in the same sense we should not increase the financial support. Who is to say that the baby should suffer from the choices the mother made? It is important that throughout the pregnancy a teen has an adult to look up to and ask for help. This will insure the mothers health and reduce stresses during pregnancy and the babies health during and after pregnancy. When parents of pregnant teens first find out that their child is pregnant they probably experience a wide range of emotions, from shock and disappointment to grief and worry about the future.
They also take away from their own lives, because a child raising a child is a big task for anyone to take on. The best way for teenagers to decrease the rate in pregnancy is to practice abstinence. It helps control the birth rates and stops the transmittal of STD's. Most teens have sex because of peer pressure and the fear of being left out. Abstinence is very important but the friends you child chooses is also important to the way they approach having sex.
Birth control is important to teenagers, and they should be used if a teen is to become sexually active. Parents should remember to teach their children about birth control always, just in case a teen should become curious and decide to have sex. In conclusion teen pregnancy has hard an effect on society, in many ways. Most teen pregnancies were not planned. CFOS says that about 65% of teen pregnancy's were not even discussed with their sexual partners.

Birth control for teenagers or in general has supporters and antis. While its a safe way to prevent unwanted pregnancies some believe its an immoral thing which should not be done.
As several teens use the excuse that sex feels better without a condom pregnancy is likely to occur just because of that simple saying. Having a child comes with a lot of responsibility. Teens don’t think of the consequences of their actions. Children take up a lot of time, which also means, no more school. The teen should first understand that all their free time is lost, that she will have to find some way to live for herself and the child, and that any future plans are now not what she was planning.
