Help and Hope for Pregnant Teens
Over the years, we have featured a few of these books. The common thread among most of these books are focused on the girl “in trouble”. Teen fathers, evidently get a pass. No questions for them on issues of morality or defiant behavior toward parents.
Like most of the other books we have featured on our site about this topic, this one is written with a eye toward Christian faith. On the plus side, the author is a little more forgiving and less judgmental about issues of pregnancy. Don’t get me wrong, the underlying thesis is still girls behaving badly, but at least she directs some of that judgment to parents who are shaming or abandoning kids.
Not surprisingly, the issues of consent or criminal conduct was never considered. It was just considered to be a mistake or a girl causing trouble.
