Teen mothers are busy. In addition to raising their child, they must negotiate the responsibilities of doing their best in either school or a job, and often both. Not having enough hours in the day is probably an understatement, and the idea of taking time to connect with their children through activities like arts and crafts might seem near impossible.
But sharing creative time with kids can have a life-long impact on social, cognitive and emotional development. One of the most important benefits is the chance to spend some quality time bonding together. This week, that's exactly what our Teen Moms, Mentors, and Children did, laughing, sharing a meal, and having a good time as they created their Valentine Crafts.
