I came across this particular article. It really concerns me. It doesn't allow minors as parents to access needed welfare benefits. It does not promote family preservation. The article actually stated that TANF does not want to reward teenage childbearing. So these young women are left without any help unless of course they live with their parents. No one considers that the young woman's parents may have kicked her out. One of her family members may have caused the situation. Yet she and her child pay the ultimate price in judgement.
