Abstract: This Tracer Study assesses the impact of the Teenage Mothers Project (tmp) on some of the mothers and children who were participants between 1986 and 1989. The tmp took an all-embracing approach that encompassed the development of the young women, stimulation and care for the babies, support in the home and contact with the babies' fathers. This report shows how 'a new door opened' for former participants in developing their resilience following the birth of their first child and arresting a negative life trend. The study also supports the position that interventions that promote parenting education, strong mother-child bonding and early stimulation can have long-term positive development impact on the child aged 0-3 years.
