Support group to focus on needs of parents of teen parents

ANDERSON — About 8 percent of Hoosier children live in a home where a grandparent is head of household, according to the AARP (Indiana). Many teenage parents are doing their best to balance school work, a new baby, a job, and learning how to parent. Behind the scenes is a grandparent trying to do the right thing.

The focus of a new group is to support the grandparents who have opened heart and home for their teen parent and new baby. This group, called “Parents of Teen Parents,” will have its inaugural meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 1, at New Horizons United Methodist Church, 611 E. 53rd St.

Free sessions will run every first Saturday at 10 a.m. but will take a summer break. Topics in the one-hour sessions will include self-care, strengthening communication, conflict resolution, obtaining educational resources, financial aid, and more. The group is on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ptpsupport.

Pastor Gina Kirkland as well as Michelle Cramer, a counselor at Aspire, will provide information to attendees. Cramer is a licensed clinical social worker and has been employed at Aspire Indiana (formerly Center for Mental Health) for almost 14 years.

For information, call Crystal Everhart at 610-8528 or email ptpsupport@indy.rr.com.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Got a song stuck in your head? Just surrender Ever have a song stuck in your head? You find yourself thinking about the song at random times during the day. Or humming the song at odd times during the day. Or worse yet, when stopped at a traffic signal you find yourself belting it out only to realize that even with the windows rolled up, the person in the car beside you can hear your not-so-musical rendition.
