Actually, I decided to add that teens with boyfriends 20+ are also teens who need to be parented. So basically, it is more likely teens who have little supervision or guidelines from parents are more likely to get pregnant.

Well, for the record, I teach teenagers too, and the biggest issues is lack of knowledge about contraception. They don't pay enough attention in health classes. In particular, the boys are too busy drawing penises on the desks or in their books.

15. Do you think teens with boyfriends 20+ are more than likely to get pregnant? I think that it could happen but not always. It depends on a lot of issues at hand. I also think that the lack of communication between a girl and her parents also can lead to a girl getting pregnant if she is not comfortable talking to her parents or has a difficult time approaching them on anything. I think if parents would open up more communication and connections with their kids they might help stop this more often.
