Monday, March 24, 2008TEEN HEALTH: PREGNANCY & CUTTING
I'm not sure this is a topic I've ever written about on this blog before, but after exchanging new magazines for old this morning, I came across this article in Girl's Life Magazine (Feb/Mar 2008, pg 60): When You Least Expect It. It was a good article, and I thought that with the rash of news articles on teen pregnancy (Jamie Lynn Spears, Juno, etc) and this years higher teen pregnancy rates, I'd mention it here along with some resources.
Healthy Teen Network
Planned Parenthood: 1.800.230.PLAN
Library Resources on Teenage Pregnancy
Library Resources on being Teenage Parent
Short booklist on teen pregnancy and parenting
"Karen: the editor's page" (GL)also has a quick commentary on teen pregnancy
The magazine also has an article on cutting (pg 77) and teen self-abuse.
Here are resources if you or someone you know is involved in that:
1.800.DONT.CUT, sponsored by S.A.F.E.
Short short booklist on cutting
Important stuff here. Take a little time to read about it.
