Teen parents need all the support they can muster. Reports in the US show that there aren’t necessarily more teen parents than a generation ago, but the trend is for marrying and having children in late twenties today. This makes teen parents seem more out of sync with the current world. Teen parenting is challenging. Here are some resources for getting practical and confidential help for teen moms and dads. The agencies are able to direct the teen to counseling, obtain help in school advocacy, refer to emergency assistance for food, clothing, diapers and the like. In addition, teenage parents can receive help with family planning, transitional housing and take advantage of child development classes to help them with the difficult task of raising a baby at an early age.
