This study will attempt to answer the following research questions:
1. Among HIPPY families, are there significant differences in the parent involvement, school readiness, and literacy
skills of children born to teenage mothers versus children born to traditional-age mothers?
2. To what extent does maternal age influence the ability of literacy skills and parental involvement to predict school
3. What specific components of the HIPPY program do teen mothers in HIPPY suggest were the most beneficial to
them and their children?
4. What additional information or training do teen mothers feel HIPPY could provide to better support them as their children�s first teacher and thus better ensure their children enter school ready to learn?
