About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Gottfried, Ted

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-Many accounts of teens, sex, and consequences seem to focus mainly on the young woman, leaving young men in the cold as far as finding out the facts. Gottfried focuses on teen fathers in America and their role in the child-rearing process. He brings to the table the myths associated with teen fatherhood and then explains realities, bringing in the emotions of those involved. The book offers real-life stories that complement the discussions and gives practical information such as how to accept the fact of becoming a dad, dealing with the reactions of parents, realities of pregnancy and birth, and taking responsibility for one's baby. It also talks about day-to-day life with the child and the mother, and the struggles that can be encountered on all ends. The author discusses frankly the harsh realities of teen fatherhood and the burdens it presents for the future, both in terms of getting an education and the financial implications. This title duplicates much of the material in Gail B. Stewart's Teen Fathers (Lucent, 1997) and Margi Trapani's Reality Check: Teenage Fathers Speak Out (Rosen, 1999) but it is a worthy purchase where there is a need for more titles on the topic.
