Summary: Teenage pregnancy is not a new problem, but the social costs are higher than ever:  teen parents who drop out of school can't earn enough to raise a family; young mothers are most likely to be illiterate and to become alcoholic; they and their babies are at high risk to suffer abuse.  This program follows several pregnant teenagers through the births of their children and subsequent changes in their lives.  A developmental psychologist for the University of Rochester School of Medicine explains his finding that nurses' visits during pregnancy and the first two years of life helped to change some of the problems of depression and poverty.  The program also covers problems caused in the past when some of the girls gave their babies up for adoption.
