Keeping Families Together

Half of all poverty-stricken children under six are born to adolescent parents.  Children of teen mothers are 50 percent more likely to have low birthweight, 33 percent more likely to become teen mothers themselves, and 2.7 times more likely to be incarcerated than the sons of mothers who delay childbearing.  Teen mothers are half as likely to earn their high school diplomas or GEDs and are more likely to be on welfare than mothers who are older when they give birth.  In addition, research shows that over 60 percent of teen parents have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse, often by a household member.
