Moose Jaw Times-Herald: Lisa's Corner: The importance of teen parenting supports

By Lisa Goudy

High school itself is demanding enough with heavy workloads and assignments to finish, not to mention the additional pressures and stresses and enjoyment of being a teenager. In your teen years, many teenagers discover who they are and who they want to become. Thats without being a mother on top of that. 

However, according to Statistics Canada data released this week, the teen mother birth rate in Saskatchewan per capita is higher than any other province.
