    Review:
    Being a parent exacerbates the problems all teens face. Teen parents have to mature quickly and cope with the problems in order to continue their own personal development and give their children a good start in life. The video focuses on five areas where teen parents face great challenges, and offers suggestions and strategies to cope with various facets of these problems. Realizing that stressed parents can become child abusers, the video suggests ways to avoid this by focusing on two of the parent?s needs: stress management and personal development. Parents are urged to continue their education for personal fulfillment as well as to secure a better job and more promising future for themselves and their child. The focus of the program then shifts to the parental role, warning that parenting is difficult because children are helpless and demanding. Information highlights bonding with children, positive reinforcement, and safety awareness. Each segment is clearly explained, and the main points listed onscreen. For example, teens learn why physical discipline is less effective than time-outs. A variety of parent-child sequences, featuring moms, dads, and interracial parent-child combinations, illustrate the narrator?s points. The video can be stopped at numerous places for discussion. While primarily directed at teens who are, or are about to become parents, the video could be used successfully in classes preparing teens for future parenthood.
