Abstract

Injury is a leading cause of death for young children, and the children of teenaged parents may be at increased risk. This qualitative study explored pregnant and parenting teenagers' child safety beliefs and practices related to 4 topics: preventing accidental suffocation via safe sleeping practices, motor vehicle collision safety, prevention of inflicted head trauma, and drowning prevention. Twenty-four focus groups were held with 93 pregnant and/or parenting teenagers. Participants reported variation in their sleeping arrangements, transportation methods, caregivers, and childcare settings. Confusion over safety information was common. Child safety practices were influenced by boyfriends/husbands, parents, grandparents, and teachers.
