Mother Tongue | Other Mothers’ Voices
Essays by teens who are both parents and high school students
Mother Tongue is at its best as a forum for many parents’ voices. I am excited to share the thoughts and perspectives of seven young moms on issues of parenting, health, time management, discovering goals, planning for the future and summoning the courage to make it through rough days. While their vantage points are particular to teen mothers, these essays’ topics and insights are relevant to parents across the spectrum of age.
Each writer is a student of my 11th/12th grade Capital High School Mother Tongue English class for teen parents—a key program of the Mother Tongue Project.
