Taking Charge

This chapter discusses the four critical life domains of education, personal relationships, parenting, and employment/career faced by adolescent mothers. These life domains are essential elements of the Taking Charge group curriculum and are based on empirical research on risk factors that impact the self-sufficiency of adolescent mothers and their overall quality of life. A life domain is a life territory in which we must have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to assume responsibility and “take charge” of that area, regardless of our life circumstances. These four critical life domains are risk factors that adolescent mothers struggle with on a daily basis and need accelerated, advanced skills to address.
