Teen pregnancies down statewide

Email

Think your teenagers aren't listening when you have "the talk?" Declining teen pregnancies in Minnesota indicate some kids are paying attention.

Teenwise Minnesota reported the number of teen mothers fell 14 percent between 2010 and 2011. Education and human services are credited as major reasons for the drop. A 16.5 percent decrease was reported for the 18 to 19-year-old group alone, who are actually adults.
