ABSTRACT
Abstract: This paper presents results from a survey of rural parents' perceptions of the Baby Think It Over teaching aid. The teaching aid is an electronic baby (infant simulator) used to create an experience that simulates the experience of parenting a young infant. There were no differences in parents' perceptions of the teaching aid based on their child's teen parenting beliefs. Parents (65%) perceived communication between them and their children on parenting and sexuality issues was improved by the intervention. Almost equal numbers of parents found the babies to have a positive effect on family activities (38%) and a disruptive effect (37%) on family activities. Yet, 90% of the parents claimed they would recommend the Baby Think It Over program to a friend.
