Altoona, PA Author Publishes New Book
July 19, 2012 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) The Epidemic of Teen Pregnancy: An American Tragedy, a new book by Lisa Covitch, has been released by RoseDog Books.
This book, The Epidemic of Teen Pregnancy: An American Tragedy is about the challenges of becoming a teenage mother. The author shares some of the teen pregnancy cases she has dealt with personally over the years.
This book also discusses methods of preventing teen pregnancy. The author includes various resources that could be helpful to a teenage girl if she discovers she is pregnant. Lisa Covitch believes that parents and schools need to become proactive when dealing with teenagers, and they need to be more open with teens about the issues of teen pregnancy.
This book talks about the options teens have if they become pregnant. These include: keeping the baby, adopting out the baby or aborting the baby. Covitch also discusses some trends of today, such as grandparents raising babies of teen mothers, since many teenagers are not prepared for the responsibility of parenthood.
