Foster youth in the United States who transition out of care have a difficult time transitioning into the world independently. In addition to emerging into adulthood the youth who are parenting during their transition are faced with even more significant barriers. As an attempt to guide those adolescent mothers transitioning out of care this curriculum is a tool to enhance their parenting skills, coping skills, and to increase their ability to overcome barriers as they transpire into the world of adulthood as parents. This curriculum will offer psychoeducation covering topics such as; stress management, coping, and parenting styles to assist in fulfilling adolescent mothers transitioning out of care to reach their full potential as individuals and as an adolescent mother. This curriculum will also include personal assessments, role-playing scenarios and other exercises for the participants to use to practice the concepts learned.
