Teenage pregnancy is when a girl of 13-19 gets pregnant. Teenage pregnancy has been a huge problem and worry to Ghana. Each day writers from different and various stations have tried their best to curb this situation but to no avail .I therefore take this opportunity to express my view or opinion on the cause and solution to prevent teenage pregnancy. The following are some causes of teenage pregnancy and their solutions.
To commence with ,lack off parental care and control is one of the major cause of teenage pregnancy.
Further more ,peer pressure are one off the factors that causes early childbearing. Often females may be pressured or forced by an male or colleague who will engage her in sexual activities.
To conclude with, is sexual violence .Sexual violence is a form of gender based violence of any sexual act . These can be rape, child sexual abuse.
However ,I suggest that government should develop and evaluate programs in communities where teen births are maximum rate.
