Written for teens who straddle the world of adolescence and parenthood, this parenting guide is geared to the special needs of very young parents. Interviews with teen mothers and fathers reinforce discussions of the stages of development during the first year-breast- and bottle-feeding, moving to solid food, teaching and playing with babies, providing appropriate health care, and ensuring their safety. The needs of the young parents are stressed along with the developmental needs of the child. Presented in an accesible, teen-friendly format, this book is appropriate for all parents, whether they are married, single but living together, together but living separately, or a single parent alone.
