Item description for Dreams to Reality: Help for Young Moms: Education, Career, and Life Choices by Laura Haskins-bookser & Jami Moffett...
Overview The author draws on her own experiences as a teenage mother to offer tips on setting and accomplishing goals, providing information on relationships, finances, college, paternity issues, job training, and travel.
Offering advice, anecdotes, and inspiration for young or teen mothers, this story of one woman's experience offers hope where there often seems to be none—when the hard work of parenting is compounded by the unfinished business of growing up and making plans for the future. Without judgment, this book lays out helpful guidelines and possible pitfalls that face a young, single woman who cares for her child but refuses to lose her ambition. Money management, relationship issues, funding higher education, and other ways to start fresh without starting over are discussed. By rethinking options, reevaluating plans, and working hard, young mothers can learn to integrate their new families into their plans for themselves, and get back on track to realizing their dreams.

Sound wisdom in an easy-to-read format Jun 27, 2006
This book could definitely prove invaluable to any number of young mothers unsure about their future prospects. With grim statistics looming overhead informing these young women that only 1% of teen mothers will receive a Bachelors by the age of 30, this book is a refreshing and realistically informative book on how a college education is indeed possible, even while running a single parent household. I myself had my daughter in high school and have gone on to live on family housing on a college campus and I find the advice Haskins-Bookser offers right on target with my experience. Highly recommendable.
