A Daughter Becomes a Mom

Jennifer is 17 and pregnant. She lives with her mother, who has been very supportive and has been helping her get the house ready for the baby. Jennifer goes to school and plans to continue after her baby is born. The stress is overwhelming. Jennifer and her mother argue a lot (it’s hard for anyone to become a parent while still being parented!).

A visitor from Great Expectations talks with Jennifer about how to express herself and navigate her emotions. At the visitor’s invitation, Jennifer’s mother sits in on some of their conversations. Mother and daughter grow closer as a result; Jennifer’s mother even picks up a few parenting tips. Together they organize a baby shower – without a single argument!
