Boarding School Options for Teen Mothers
It is estimated that each year there are about 750,000 reported teen pregnancies. As a parent, learning that your teen is pregnant and discerning how to deal with this can be quite challenging. Many parents struggle with forcing their teens to finish their education while they care for their grandchildren or pull their teen out of school and throw them into the challenges of parenting as a teen. Not too many parents are aware that there is a solution that would relieve them of having to parent their grandchildren and prevent teen dropouts. Boarding school can be an alternative solution that works to help your teen flourish. Helps Them Deal with Emotional Issues There are therapeutic boarding schools that work with helping young teenage girls deal with the struggles of an unexpected pregnancy. They help them to deal with relatable topics to teen pregnancy such as low self esteem, lack of relationship skills, depression, sexual promiscuity, difficulties in school as well as past psychological or sexual abuse. Through different programs teens are about to focus on the healing process learning about self awareness, assertiveness, being responsible and accountable for their actions, anger management, stress reduction, and substance abuse issues. Helps Them Prep for Childbirth Boarding schools not only focus on the emotional aspect of helping young teens who are pregnant. They also assist them in preparing for childbirth with different programs including health education, childbirth classes, and aerobic exercises (low impact). They are also taught how to care for themselves and their child as they learn skills including budgeting, managing money, food preparation, household chores, social skills, and etiquette. For teens that are not yet ready to become parents, boarding schools also provide counselors that will help them in considering their options including adoption. Great Therapy Options You will also find that there are plenty of therapeutic options for teen mothers. Boarding schools ensure that each student is participating in individual, group, and family therapy sessions which will assist them in healing as well as gaining insight on themselves and the choices they have made. They are given the tools they need to make proper decisions in the future and learn how to value themselves for the young women that they are. Many parents have found solace in sending their pregnant teen to a boarding school with such options as listed above. Boarding schools provide what sometimes may not be able to be provided by the parent and thus gives their child a second chance at life.
