The need for a culturally competent teen parenting curriculum is twofold: one it meets the underserved and unmet needs of a marginalized minority population by addressing the critical issue of culture and its impact on pregnancy and parenting. Two, it mitigates the threat of acculturation by honoring the importance of ones’ culture of origin in imparting valuable traditions and beliefs.
The purpose of this curriculum is to develop a culturally aware and sensitive parenting program for adolescent Latinos. The curriculum will enable social workers, parent educators and school counselors to appropriately serve the Latino community by providing them with a comprehensive, inclusive, culturally competent parenting program.
The curriculum is presented in 10 modules and intended to be delivered over the course of a 10 month school year to parenting or pregnant adolescents by teachers, parent educators or social workers . The topics include: Infant/toddler development, parenting styles, safety, healthy relationships, the importance of fathers, life skills, discipline, cultural expectations around parenting, adverse childhood experiences, resiliency and self-care.
The creation and implementation of this culturally competent teen parenting curriculum intends to facilitate optimum learning; improved parent child relationship outcomes and the development of parental self-efficacy, self-esteem and self-identity (Robbers, 2011).
