Teen Dads looks at the dilemmas teenage dads face
as they try to balance two vastly different roles - being a teenager
and being a dad. Adolescent years are complex enough, becoming a
dad during these years makes it even tougher. We meet three young
men who are currently facing the fact that they are a dad;
what that really means for them and how it impacts on their lives.
They have to deal with issues most teenagers know nothing about,
from the birth of their baby and how to change a nappy, to guardianship
rights and financial responsibilities. Very few teenage boys are
adequately prepared for fatherhood.
