Teen Moms Anonymous
A support group for teen moms.
Teen Moms Anonymous
Do you ever feel isolated? Alone? Overwhelmed? Maybe unsure of your future? Becoming a mother when you are still an adolescent, still finding and establishing yourself, has its challenges:
- How do I manage it all? School, parenting, a part-time job.
- How can I still enjoy being a teenager and a young woman?
- How do I deal with uncomfortable feelings and emotions - anxiety, depression, hopelessness?
Don't despair. Teen Moms Anonymous can help.
We are a support group program for pregnant and parenting teens ages 15-19 and women who have been teen moms. We are a safe place where you can (1) meet others who have walked a similar path, (2) find emotional and moral support, and (3) learn skills and find resources to help you succeed.
We offer virtual/online support group classes that meet once a week for 90 minutes. There is no cost to participate. In our support groups, we provide facilitators who guide the discussion, suggest reading materials, and help you grow into a more confident, skilled woman and mother. Topics we explore include:
- Emotion Regulation
- Domestic Violence
- Financial Literacy
- Codependent Behaviors
- Anxiety and Depression
- Parenting Skills
- Coping Skills
- Parenting Styles
- Co-Parenting Skills
- Narcissist Mothers and Fathers
- Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
- Complex Trauma
- Healing Maternal Wounds
Teen Moms Anonymous has profoundly impacted me in so many ways since I joined the July cohort. The founder Dr. Chris's dedication and the resources provided within her organization have been nothing short of inspirational. Throughout the program, I've delved into motherhood, using "The Emotionally Absent Mother" as a guiding tool, which has given me valuable insights into effective parenting. Additionally, the weekly discussions covering a wide range of topics, particularly those related to situations of abuse and parenting, have proven to be an invaluable source of support and empowerment. Through this group, I am looking forward to not only gaining new knowledge but also supporting other teen moms to feel a sense of belonging and solidarity while fostering personal growth and resilience.
