In the monthly feature, several Passages students are asked how they have been affected through bonding with their children, the challenges of being a young parent, and what they have learned from their children.
Passages Lead Teacher and Curriculum Coordinator Andrea Itkin commented:
When I hear what our students say about parenthood, I realize how universal those feelings are. Whether they are 17 or 37, the life of first-time parents are changed drastically by the needs of their new babies. One of the most rewarding elements of working with young parents is to witness their personal growth as they learn to nurture the development of their children and discover and refine their own strengths. Their voices deserve to be heard.
