Teen Issues and Teen Pregnancy

"Teen Issues" offers resources for teens, parents and teachers at CHS. Over the past semester we have covered issues concerning our teens such as: Coping with Divorce, Anxiety and Stress, Body Image & Eating Disorders, Bullying, and today's topic Teen Pregnancy. 

"If you're a child born to a teenage mother, you are more likely to become a teenage mother, and you're more likely to live in a resource-poor setting."  Melissa Gilliam University of Chicago has devoted her professional life to research.
