Purpose: To explore the adolescent girls’ personal experience with the Baby Think It OverTM -an infant simulator. Framework: The study was guided by Erikson’s depiction of adolescence as a period characterized by a maturational crisis that culminates in either identity formation or identity diffusion. Sample: Total population sampling utilizing the stories of 10 adolescent girls. Method: This qualitative study employed the phenomenological approach based on Merleau- Ponty’s philosophical ideas and utilizing Colaizzi’s method of analysis. Data was collected using audio-taped, semi-structured interviews. Results: Ten themes became apparent: Recognition of illusion of preconceived ideas about parenting an infant; Perception of societal disapproval; Hardships encountered during the week as opposed to the weekend; Augmentation of difficulty during guardianship of boy Baby Think It OverTM; Profound desire for relinquishment; Allocation of marks as incentive for compliance; Parental endorsement of the experience; Participants’ counsel; Affective journey; and Eclectic Insights. Conclusions: The new insights gained by the participants differed markedly from the romantic fantasies they created prior to the experience and initiated thinking processes relative to future consequences of sexual activity. Further research will help evaluate the premise that exposing adolescents to the realities of parenting could lead to a decrease in adolescent pregnancies.
