[Evidence-based Presentation] Teenagers and toddlers experience emotional upheavals as they progress through their respective stages of emotional and psychosocial development.áHowever, when teenage mothers are suddenly confronted with raising a toddler, the teenager and the toddler experience a 'mirrored identity crisis', that has the potential for adverse effects on the psychosocial development of the teenager and the toddler as well as the ongoing mother/child relationship. Research studies investigating the experiences of teenager mothers raising toddlers are lacking.ááAásystematic review of the literature was completed to explore the psychosocial patterns of development for teenagers and toddlers.á These data were compared and contrasted to identify the potential emotional problems that teenager mothers may experience while raising a toddler.áThese data were collated and developed into guidelines to assist teenage mothers to meet the psychosocial needs of the toddler as well as understand her own personal psychosocial needs as an adolescent and as a parent of a toddler.áTeenage mothers whose infants and toddlers received their health care in two pediatric primary health care centers received these guidelines when their infants were 6-months old. This age of the infant was selected so that the teenage mothers would have adequate time to become familiar with anticipated toddler behaviors and to prepare for the demands of raising a psychosocially healthy toddler.á After the implementation of these guidelines entitled, "Fun Visits for Teens and Tots:Yeah! IÆm a Toddler who Runs Faster then My Teenage Mom", the teenage mothers reported more confidence in caring for their toddlers, positive behavioral changes of the toddlers as reported by the mothers, and a more positive mothering experience.
