Adolescents

Adolescents whose familiar income if classifies enter poor almost do not have no possibility to complete 2 after degree the birth of a son. Twenty and four percent of these adolescents the eight years of escolaridade had had of five, but 2% had only continued its education after the birth of the son. Between that they had had a son before the 20 years, only 23% had studied beyond 8 series, while the ones that had not given the light, 44% had studied beyond 8 series. Already during the pregnancy, the adolescents abandon school and job. When very they study or they work ties the seventh month of pregnancy (SOF, 1997). Constaint and pressures of directors, professors, colleagues and parents of colleagues are between the factors that determine the exit of the school before the birth of son.

Some parents decisively contribute this abandonment when preferring to hide the situation ' ' vexatria' ' of the pregnancy of its son. After the birth, the abandonment of the school and the exit that if the young mothers impose, are the ones that need to pay with its domestic work (the family whom its son shelters and, is the ones that need to gain the sustenance for both). In this last case, ahead of the difficulties in at least finding vacant in a next gratuitous day-care center or in any gratuitous day-care center, the adolescent one searchs the support of its family during its hours of working, what it still more takes its complicated relation with the son fragile. The support of the family, in special in low income stratus, means ballot box dilution, or attenuation of the legitimacy of the authority of the adolescent mother on the son/son (in the middle class, the interference of the family is lived as crisis and questioned by the adolescent) (DESSER, 1993). When they do not obtain this familiar support, not rare destine part of its sparing expirations to the other woman who will take care of of its son during this day.
