In the fall of 2008 this curriculum will be taught to all high school students in Texas. What is P.A.P.A?
The learning objectives of p.a.p.a. include: responsible parenting, a basic understanding of paternity and child support laws, skills for healthy relationships, financial implications of becoming a parent, impact of father involvement, benefits of stable family relationships on children, and relationship violence prevention. It should be noted that p.a.p.a. is not a sex education curriculum.
They teach children needed to know items. They learn how much child support cost, what diapers cost and all the hardships involved in having a child at such a young age. I think it is a great awareness tool to help give the kids the reality check they need before they engage in premarital activities.
It is about time they do something right.
