    Compared to people who begin childbearing in their 20's, teenagers tend to be less effective parents. On average, teen parents have inaccurate and inadequate knowledge of child development and appropriate parenting techniques. Teen parents are also more likely than older parents to live in poverty; therefore, they may lack access to the resources needed to support optimal brain development in their young children. Approximately 15 percent of Shelby County births are to teen mothers. A newly passed resolution of the MCS Board of Commissioners states the Board's commitment to reducing teen pregnancy. We applaud the efforts of our school system and other community groups in rallying to address this issue, as taking these steps represent considerable progress. As a data-driven, result-oriented coalition, we suggest that MCS evaluate the current Family Life curriculum and determine whether it is consistent with proven practices nationwide. Some studies find that abstinence-only programs have no effect on teen pregnancy or sexual activity, while comprehensive programs that include information about contraception promote safe sex and reduce teen pregnancy. In order to improve the well-being of families in our community, as well as support the cognitive, social and emotional growth of our youngest citizens, it is our hope that improvements are made and resources are allocated according to the best available research.
