Once you have a vision written down (Habakkuk 2: 2) .The word of God tells us that once you have a vision write it down, make it plain on tablets so that you can run with it, break it into achievable goals. What are the strategies the teenage mother can put in place to achieve the goals. It is important that the teenage parent set goals that are achievable. The goals must also have time frames.

Have a to do list calendar

  1. Parenting is tough, and being a parent while still learning about yourself and the world is even harder as a teen. My Mother was a teenage Mom and looking back I am so proud of her because I don’t think I could manage. Good relationships, self-confidence, support, and not losing focus are definitely needed to keep moving forward.

  2. This is such a necessary post!! There really aren’t enough resources out there for teenage moms that encourage them to continue on with education (so important)! Thanks so much for sharing this guide, I know it will help many young mothers!
