Using a peer-to-peer approach, this program educates students about the risks of teenage pregnancy. A young mother describes how becoming pregnant changed her life and forced her to defer her dreams of college and a career. A teen father discusses how fatherhood changed his life and stresses that sexually active males must share the responsibility for preventing pregnancies. An abstinent teen shares her reasons for her choice. For those who aren't abstinent, program emphasizes that knowing the facts and using contraception effectively and consistently greatly reduces the chances of a pregnancy. Special attention is paid to exposing common myths that put teens at greater risk for pregnancy and deceive teens into thinking it's safe to have sex without contraception.
"Viewers will relate to their peers in this film and will find the information presented about teen pregnancy and parenting sobering." - School Library Journal
