In this in-depth look at the exemplary teen-parenting program at the Business Industry School in the Los Angeles Unified School District, teen parents talk about the difficult issues they face.
Ruth Beaglehole, the director of the program, and other staff members work with the teen parents and their children in a focused, personalized atmosphere.
In addition to a child-care program that emphasizes non-violence, the parents attend two-hour support groups four days a week where they deal with issues of self-worth, violent relationships, and why children behave the way they do.
The goal of this program is to help teen mothers see that they can take control of their own lives and have nurturing, loving, playful relationships with their children.
Narrated by Debbie Allen, this video shows the importance of a strong teen parenting program and is useful for anyone developing or working to improve such a program.
