Teen Parent Connection

Our mission: To serve the community through education on the realities and responsibilities of teenage pregnancy and through long-term assistance to adolescent parents for their development of self-esteem, parenting skills, and empowerment towards self-sufficiency.   

Since 1985, Teen Parent Connection has delivered education, support, and resources to adolescent parents and their children in DuPage County, Illinois. Our primary goal is to provide services that will prevent child abuse and neglect among this at-risk population.

😭What happens if all of the tips and tricks don’t seem to be working?!

😭Sometimes babies just cry, and that’s hard!!

👉🏽 WE ALL HAVE OUR LIMITS👈🏻
& there’s NO SHAME in that!

If you’re at your limit, feeling angry, or overwhelmed, make sure your baby is in a safe place (like there crib or pack n’ play) and take a breather.
IT IS OK TO DO THAT!

👉🏽step out of the space and take some deep breaths.
👉🏻 call someone for support.
👉🏾Ask someone else in the house to take a turn comforting baby.
👉🏿If you’ve had a hard day, try and plan some breaks into your day to help recharge your batteries. When you can you take a moment for yourself?

💜Parenting is a 24/7 job! 💜
👶🏽Give yourself some grace
👶🏼Give yourself a break when you need it
💜YOU DESERVE IT💜
