    In need of teen pregnancy expert

    Hi everyone,
    I'm doing a research paper on teen pregnancy the causes and effects and are there any solutions ? My view on things is to have a better support system at home , better sex education through out all four years of high school would help improve. Why are these methods not working now? I also feel like welfare , and food stamps make it easy to be parents when a teenager madly in love decides to have a baby. Not only am I focusing on how this affects the teen but what the baby will go through being a offspring of a teenage mother. For my research paper I will need a expert interview on what they think , not only to learn but see things in a different light.
    Thank you,
    I look forward to hearing from you.
