Being in the Teen Parent Program has helped Liliana and I a lot. I can begin with that in after 2 weeks of being in school Liliana started walking at around 1 1/2. To me that was very big because she had no interest in walking and after being in school with other kids she started walking. I have learned a lot from the child development class like how to handle your 2 year old. I like the program because I feel like we are a family and that everyone of the Moms and teachers understand what your going through and we are always there for each other.
Sally, Laura, and april have allways been there. Thanks to them we are able to try new things. They help us be successful as an adult and being a good Mom.
Being in the teen parent program has also made new Friends. Before being in the program I didn't really know anybody from Glenwood Springs, and well Yampah has made wonderful expiriences with them.
This is a little project that Liliana and I did to learn the importance of brushing your teeth. We learned that it is very important to brush your teeth after each meal, especially at night. Many drinks leave horrible stains. We used boiled eggs and soaked one in Pepsi, one in apple juice, and another in pink lemonade. As you can see the eggs were completely stained. Next what we did was to brush it with just water, the stains lightly came off but not much. Then we brushed the egg with toothpaste, and most stains came off. At last we were left with a lightly stained egg. So like I said, it is very important to brush your teeth with toothpaste after each meal.
