Trust Your Instincts

My name is Heather.  I am 18 years old and a single mother of a 20-month-old daughter.  I was 15 when I started having sex and by 16 I was pregnant.

It all started my freshman year in high school.  I met the father of my daughter in freshman homeroom.  He was 17 and seemed like a rebel in a way.  I went to a Catholic elementary school with boring people who really didn't do anything exciting, so when he showed interest in me I decided to give it a shot.  I should have thought about it a little longer though, I mean he was a 17-year-old freshman and didn't even have a driver’s license.  That should have woken me up but it didn't.  I went against my better judgment and we started dating.

Why We Wrote this Book

For many years we heard kids making the same mistakes over and over when it came to unhealthy relationships or bad sexual decisions.  But as we know, teens don’t usually listen to adults, so we asked older teens, especially teen parents to talk to our students, then to our students’ parents.

We had so many requests for more talks, more stories, and more guidance that we put it all in a book. The stories are very powerful, some very sad, but all with something important these teens really want you to know.

Story writers include high school seniors looking back on high school relationships, teen parents, a teen with AIDS, a ‘player’ on a mission and where his mission ended, and much more.
