CHICAGO, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Confused and scared teen fathers seldom get direction and hope. Fathers' rights powerhouse and nationally known attorney, Jeffery Leving, wants to change that dilemma. He will speak upfront to teen dads at the upcoming Teen Fathers' Rights Conference at DePaul University. Leving is a revered father's advocate bringing more than 30 years experience to the mission. His main goal for helping children raising children: know your rights!
"Teen fathers are more likely to engage in delinquent behaviors, use alcohol routinely, deal drugs and quit school. They're also more likely than their childless peers to commit and be convicted of illegal activity. Teen fathers need help, hope, and positive role models," explains Leving.
Hosted by Next Step Program and co-hosted by DePaul University, the Teen Fathers' Rights Conference highlights responsibilities of teen dads to their children and to themselves. Stay in school, access available resources, have a plan, and most importantly know you're not alone and people care.
Leving's lively, encouraging words will be followed by a panel of speakers offering advice on parent education, higher education and child welfare services.
