The purpose of this project was to develop a model curriculum for adolescent single mothers in the foster care system, which contained psychoeducational information incorporated into the parenting program in order to: (I) increase knowledge about parenting issues; (2) practice the skills learned, and (3) develop effective parenting skills.
Programs such as this one are necessary to provide adolescent mothers with good parenting skills in order to offset challenges that can affect them and their children. This program is appropriate for this population because it is interactive and it focuses on the strengths of the participants.
This program consists of six sessions that include an educational, personal reflection, and a sharing component. Successful implementation of this program can help break the cycle of teen pregnancy and child abuse by helping mothers raise their children in a healthy environment.
