The "Teen Pregnancy" segment explores a real-life unplanned pregnancy from both the teen mother's and father's point of view including feelings, lifestyle changes, and lost opportunities when one is not prepared for the responsibilities of family life.

Track 6:(after school - Eric and Jennifer are together outside school.)  (Parental influence, parental role model, explore meaning of sexuality.)

Eric:  I’m really sorry about last night.

Jennifer:  I understand but what did your dad say after I left?

Eric:  Nothing bad about you. He kind of likes you.

Jennifer:   So what then?

Eric:   As usual he talked about the three R’s >>>>being Responsible, acting Respectful and doing the Right thing.

Jennifer:  Was any of it about sex?

Eric:  Yeah...he always says the same thing. “If you don’t love a girl enough to wait until marriage, you don’t love her enough to have sex.”

Jennifer:  Eric, you know that I... I really want to be with you.

Eric:  That’s how I feel about you. I can’t stop thinking about it.  But, when I’m with Dad, he makes so much sense. 

Jennifer:  He really cares about you.

Eric:  He always tells me to keep my goals - my future in mind... BUT >>>> when I’m with you... (Frustrated!) I don’t know.

(Jennifer’s cell phone rings.)

Jennifer:  Hold on a minute. (She answers phone.) Hi Mom. Nothing.  OK. I’ll get the chicken out. See ya later. (To Eric) My Mom won’t be home until 7:30 or 8. Wanna go hangout at my house?

 

This segment examines the relationship of Jennifer and Eric, who “think they are in love”.

Eric’s Mom and Dad have had several conversations with him about waiting until marriage for sex.  Jen has good parents but they are divorces, her mom often works late and her dad live far away.
