Computer game to reduce teenage pregnancy

Posted on Friday, July 18 2008 @ 19:34:14 CEST by


The Scottish Government has come up with a plan to reduce teenage pregnancy. FUD Zilla writes the idea is to create a computer game in which a girl has to look after a baby for 72 hours, according to a study this should certainly reduce the wish of teenage girls to become parents at an early age:
The idea is to develop a computer game where a girl has to look after a baby for 72 hours and comes from an Expert Working Group on Infant Mental Health. If girls played the game for 72 hours it would almost certainly reduce their wish to become parents at an early age, the study suggests.

The report said that the 'computer games culture' and the wide familiarity of such games to children and young people opens up new options for introducing health education to young people. While it has been shown that education on sex and contraception reduces teen pregnancy rates, those most vulnerable people will not be well educated.
