The results indicated that significant changes in processing speed, focused attention, concentration performance, and attention span were associated with within subject factors from pre- to post-test and between subject factors three groupsbut not related to accuracy. Results of Post Hoc Comparisons Table 3 shows the post hoc comparisons between two groups from pre- to post-test. This means that students in the CBPA were better able to concentrate and sustain their attention after the intervention compared to Fitbit-O group.
Definition[ edit ] Most teenage pregnancies in developed countries involve legal adults. It violates the rights of girls, with life-threatening consequences in terms of sexual and reproductive health, and poses high development costs for communities, particularly in perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
The risk of maternal death for girls under age 15 in low and middle income countries is higher than for women in their twenties. Life outcomes for teenage mothers and their children vary; other factors, such as poverty or social supportmay be more important than the age of the mother at the birth.
Many solutions to counteract the more negative findings have been proposed. Teenage parents who can rely on family and community support, social services and child-care support are more likely to continue their education and get higher paying jobs as they progress with their education. This means not focusing on changing the behaviour of girls but addressing the underlying reasons of adolescent pregnancy such as poverty, gender inequality, social pressures and coercion.
This approach should include "providing age-appropriate comprehensive sexuality education for all young people, investing in girls' education, preventing child marriage, sexual violence and coercion, building gender-equitable societies by empowering girls and engaging men and boys and ensuring adolescents' access to sexual and reproductive health information as well as services that welcome them and facilitate their choices".
Teenage pregnancy puts young women at risk for health issues, economic, social and financial issues. Being a young mother in a first world country can affect one's education. Teen mothers are more likely to drop out of high school. Less than one third of teenage mothers receive any form of child support, vastly increasing the likelihood of turning to the government for assistance.
For instance, long-term studies by Duke University economist V. Joseph Hotz and colleagues, published infound that by age 35, former teen mothers had earned more in income, paid more in taxes, were substantially less likely to live in poverty and collected less in public assistance than similarly poor women who waited until their 20s to have babies.
Women who became mothers in their teens—freed from child-raising duties by their late 20s and early 30s to pursue employment while poorer women who waited to become mothers were still stuck at home watching their young children—wound up paying more in taxes than they had collected in welfare.
Many teen parents do not have the intellectual or emotional maturity that is needed to provide for another life. The children of teen mothers are more likely to be born prematurely with a low birth weight, predisposing them to many other lifelong conditions.
The worldwide incidence of premature birth and low birth weight is higher among adolescent mothers. That is because the Latino population is the least uninsured group in the Unites States  Young mothers who are given high-quality maternity care have significantly healthier babies than those who do not.
Many of the health-issues associated with teenage mothers appear to result from lack of access to adequate medical care. Young mothers and their babies are also at greater risk of contracting HIV.
The maternal mortality rate can be up to five times higher for girls aged 10—14 than for women aged 20— Illegal abortion also holds many risks for teenage girls in areas such as sub-Saharan Africa.
Obstructed labour is normally dealt with by caesarean section in industrialized nations ; however, in developing regions where medical services might be unavailable, it can lead to eclampsiaobstetric fistulainfant mortalityor maternal death. For example, in some sub-Saharan African countries, early pregnancy is often seen as a blessing because it is proof of the young woman's fertility.
In the Indian subcontinentearly marriage and pregnancy is more common in traditional rural communities than in cities.
Many teenagers are not taught about methods of birth control and how to deal with peers who pressure them into having sex before they are ready. Many pregnant teenagers do not have any cognition of the central facts of sexuality. In societies where children are set to work at an early age, it is economically attractive to have many children.
Countries with low levels of teenagers giving birth accept sexual relationships among teenagers and provide comprehensive and balanced information about sexuality.The Essex Safeguarding Children Board is a statutory body which acts as a mechanism for agreeing how relevant organisations in Essex co-operate to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.
