Egg Babies, Sugar Babies, Flour Babies...
Can They Keep Teens from Having REAL Babies?
U.S. teenagers have one of the highest pregnancy rates in the developed world. Is there something schools can do to reduce that statistic? Each year, many teachers introduce their students to "egg babies"! Egg baby (or sugar baby or flour baby) programs are easy to administer and can provide for students a lasting and powerful lesson about the responsibilities of parenthood. This week Education World explores the facts and the benefits of "egg baby" lessons!
"The babies are coming!" Could that be a cry heard in a junior high? Sadly, it could be. Babies ARE having babies. U.S. teenagers have one of the highest pregnancy rates in the developed world -- twice as high as rates found in England, New Zealand, and Canada; three times as high as that in Sweden; and nine times as high as the Dutch rate. According to a Planned Parenthood Fact Sheet, more than 1 million U.S. teenagers -- one in nine women aged 15 to 19 -- become pregnant each year.
"Teen pregnancy is not a lower socioeconomic problem," said Kathy Seeger, a home economics teacher at Slidell (Louisiana) Junior High School. "Nice kids from every socioeconomic group who want to be part of the 'in crowd' get pregnant."
Last year, two young teens at Slidell Junior High got pregnant. "They were straight-A students, scholarship material," said Seeger. "They may still do all right, pull it all together, but it'll be harder now that they have to care for babies."
Many programs exist for building teen awareness of the difficulties of pregnancy and the responsibilities of parenthood, said Seeger. One of the best programs, Baby Think It Over (see a related Education World story), works well to discourage teen pregnancy, but it can be prohibitively expensive for schools -- especially junior-high or middle schools in cash-strapped communities -- to implement.
Unfortunately junior-high students get pregnant too. Many teachers such as Seeger -- who see the need for programs aimed at preventing teen pregnancy -- are experimenting with modified versions of programs that work. What Seeger has developed for her school costs about $5 per student to implement.
'EGG BABY' ALTERNATIVES!
"When I first began [the program]," said Seeger, "I had my students make babies out of eggs." Seeger and others who have used egg babies learned that egg babies break, however. Eggs are great for emphasizing the care that babies require but, said Seeger, "I had all these students crying over the broken eggs."
Other problems associated with "egg babies" were revealed on recent postings to a message board populated by middle school teachers. "No eggs!" said one teacher. "The custodians will hate you forever!" Among the alternatives suggested on the list are potato babies or sock babies.
"Next, I tried having my students make the babies out of 5-pound bags of sugar, as the kids in the book Sixth Grade Sugar Babies do," explained Seeger. "That was better, but I found I had to weigh the sugar babies regularly to make sure students were not siphoning the sugar out and replacing it with stuffing to make the babies lighter!"
Now Seeger gives students the option of using 5-pound bags of sugar, flour, rice, or corn meal. Students encase their sacks in two pairs of pantyhose to make it very hard for them to siphon anything out. They stuff the pantyhose with Styrofoam balls or fiberfill to create a head, and they clip, stuff, and sew the remaining material to create the babies' arms and legs. Different colored hose selected to match skin tones can provide "multicultural babies." Students create their babies' appearances. They add yarn hair or a bonnet; sew on eyes, noses, and mouths; and dress the babies in baby clothes. Students put plenty of effort into creating their babies, frequently choosing to dress them in baby clothes that were once theirs.
MUCH MORE THAN BABIES!
Seeger's program, an adaptation of the state's Human Development program, is about much more than babies. The program begins months before the babies are "born"!
The program begins in August, when students return to school, with discussions of teen pregnancy. (That is about nine months before the babies arrive.) Seeger talks with students about dating and summer romances. Students talk about how teens can become carried away and about the options they might consider in difficult romantic situations.
Then, in September, Seeger teaches about changes that might be happening to the body of a young woman who is one month pregnant. That discussion continues during each subsequent month. If a school dance is coming up, Seeger shows the class pictures of how a girl that many months pregnant might look and asks how comfortable she might be at a school dance, sports event, or pep rally.
Seeger also talks about the expense of having a baby, the hospital and doctor costs, maternity and baby clothes, diaper costs, and the cost of the baby furniture parents-to-be need. The discussion turns to the responsibilities of having a baby and how much time and effort it might take to earn the needed money for a baby's care at a minimum wage salary, which is usually the best salary available to students this age.
Two weeks before the babies are "due," Seeger introduces another activity. Students wear their book bags on the front instead of the back to simulate the feeling of being pregnant. They also see films showing kinds of childbirth, including natural childbirth and Cesarean-section. Then they draw slips of paper that tell the sex of their baby and the type of birth. One student might even draw twins. At this point, students have two weeks to create their babies. Nine months after the beginning of school, the babies are "born."
CARING FOR A BABY -- EVEN ONE MADE OF SUGAR -- IS NOT EASY!
When the babies arrive, each "parent" must take the baby to school and everywhere else people ordinarily take babies. If a parent cannot keep the baby nearby, he or she must swap services or pay a sitter. Students may leave their babies with another person for a maximum of three hours. (To keep the students from playing with the babies during class, which some students tend to do when the babies first arrive, teachers sometimes set up a "playpen" area in a corner of the classroom.)
One week after the babies arrive, Seeger asks students to draw another slip of paper, one with a childhood disease written on it. Students research the disease they select and present their findings to the class. One student will draw SIDS and have to determine the cost of a baby funeral.
"Typically, on the first day students are very excited," explained Seeger. "They love to show off their babies, but by the third or fourth day, students have begun to see just how much responsibility babies are, and they are getting pretty tired of carting their babies around. Students who forget their babies in their lockers or leave them unattended at home might have to write a paper on child abuse and present the findings to the class."
Class discussions now include what life with a real baby might be like. The first day students have the babies, Seeger discusses a baby's first year. She covers the responsibilities of being a parent and has the students calculate the costs of diapers, bottles, baby food, and other needed supplies. The students also discuss the option of breast-feeding.
On the second day the babies are in the students' care, Seeger discusses a baby's second year, and so on. The students care for the "babies" for two weeks or until the babies are the equivalent of the age most of the students are.
PRAISE FOR 'FLOUR BABY' PROGRAMS
"Egg baby" and "flour baby" simulation programs received almost unanimous praise from teachers on recent postings to the Middle-L listserv.
"Our kids had egg babies," said one teacher, who admitted being skeptical about the idea her students suggested at first. "They did a great job and had a powerful learning experience."
Teachers also commented about the wide variety of cross-curriculum extension activities that "egg babies" offer. In one school, students kept a diary of their thoughts and feelings related to their babies. Some students researched current news sources to write reports on child abuse. Others wrote their babies' biographies from birth to age six. In math class, students were challenged to plan a college fund for their babies.
Yes, some teachers felt the egg babies were a bit of a distraction, but many of those teachers set up playpens in their rooms so students could focus on their work. Some schools even offered baby-sitting services in the home economics classroom or in a school day-care center.
Another enthusiastic teacher commented about the need to impart to students the idea that they should postpone parenting until they are mature and ready to support and care for a child. "Any type of parenting project that accomplishes that goal is well worth the effort," she said.
"My students get a lot out of this program," concluded Seeger. "The program might not prevent all junior-high students from having babies, but if you can prevent just one birth, you've done a lot!"

Bio Egg Baby Essay
...and as individuals. It has allowed us to have complete insight on the basics of parenting and its importance. This project was nothing like what we expected; it actually required much more interaction and attention. It made us aware of our responsibility level and gave us the opportunity to imagine how taking care of child would be. We were able to learn that children are much more difficult to maintain than we imagined, they are very delicate beings who need much attention and care at all times. We now realize that babies are very much different from us, they cannot be left un-attended at any time because they are unable to support and keep themselves safe as we can. But also that the actions of others surround you can affect how you raise and take care of the children , and at the end of the day is something goes wrong you can’t put the blame on anyone but yourself for not being attentive enough. There was also a struggle between us as the “parents” of the eggs when it came to making decisions as a couple. The first conflict came when it was time to name the children; we both had different opinions on what to name the child therefore this created an argument between us. But nonetheless we still had to come to a common agreement and find suitable name for our children that we both agreed on. Then came the task of finding a place for the children to sleep and the way they would be labelled and again we had a disagreement. This brought to our attention that when a couple has a...

The Sperm and the Egg
...The Sperm and the Egg: A Story of How Charlie and Penelope Met and Fell in Love PSY/265 March 10, 2013 The Sperm and the Egg Many people have had to sit through the birds and the bees’ explanation of where babies come from. Parents use this because it is a way of explanation without feeling as uncomfortable as one would be if they had to look their child in the eye and describe exactly what happens. This explanation would probably be easier for a parent than going through the difficult task of clarification of the scientific process even though it will be much more useful later on in life. Because every parent has to explain the process no matter the method, it would probably be more effective if the use of visual aids that show each of the steps in how the process works. However, it should be age appropriate and at the parents discretion. Both girls and boys need this information (sexual reproductive system) explained to them in any case because if left in the dark, not only would the girl be at a disadvantage when she starts menstruating, but they could end up being a parent too young in their lives. These things can be a major shock if unprepared. To explain how the scientific version works, one would have to first look at and explain the male and female body parts used; the vagina and penis. The vagina consists of the cervix, uterus, and two ovaries which are connected to the fallopian tubes. All of these complex structures are what makes the woman’s reproductive......

...EGGS "A ""A Hne"A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg." ~ Samuel Butler making another egg." "Besides for being a staple ingredient in cookie dough, we like eggs because there's lots of science involved with them." ~Blake Rider One of the most notable characteristic of an egg is how much an egg white can foam up. Why does this happen? Eggs are approximately 90 percent water and 10 percent protein. There is an electrical attraction between water molecules (for this reason you won't get any results from trying to whip up water alone) and when you beat them you are allowing the proteins to break apart the water molecules. When they get farther apart, the electric attraction decreases which allows the egg whites to spread out and bonds to form between the proteins. Over beaten eggs really means that too many bonds formed between the proteins and you can actually help to prevent this by adding vinegar. Vinegar is an acid so its particles are positively charged. These charged particles join charged protein, neutralizing them and making them less likely to form bonds with other proteins. Cold eggs whites will be more difficult to beat into a foam, because the air bubbles will be smaller and more difficult to seperate than egg whites at room temperature. Boiling eggs: Have you ever hard boiled an egg and it ended up with a flat edge on one side? Eggs have a small pocket of air trapped in-between the flatter end of the egg and the......

Taking Care of an Egg (Essay)
...ADELYN D. CABUEÑAS ASCT/AS101A PROFETH1 “TAKING CARE OF AN EGG” “Effort is the best way of showing how much you love, care, and value someone even without commitment”. For the past few weeks taking care of this “special thing” has been one of my priorities. Maybe it’s not the best among the rest, but I know that I give my 100% effort in taking care of my EGG. During the day when our Prof. told us that we have to bring an egg for the next meeting, the first thing that popped in my mind is that we are going to cook some egg recipe. I know it sounds funny to think that cooking is not even our subject curriculum. The following day she ask us if we bought the eggs that she told us to, and when we told her yes she then signed each egg. After that, Mrs. Danila announced that we’re going to take care of the egg for the whole midterm thus 50% of our grade depends on how good we handle those egg. Going home with the egg in my bag makes me feel so anxious, I was like a paranoid girl in love whose afraid, to break and lost her most precious guy. Well I guess the reason why I’m afraid to break my egg is that I don’t want to fail, coz’ failing for me is like losing a big chance. That day, when I got home the first thing I did was look for something cute where I can place my egg that I can consider safe and comfy. I ended up buying a cute dark blue box at the National Bookstore, but I find its color a bit boring so I decided to buy a violet colored paper......

..."You are going to have a baby" seven words that changed my life. On April 14th, I woke up and didn't want to go to school because I wasn't feeling well. My mom came into my room and asked me if I was going to get out of bed and go to school. I told her that I needed to go to the doctor. "Why, are you sick?" she asked. "No, I think I'm pregnant." We both just sat there and cried together. I knew then what I should not have done that night. A baby would take up all my time, the time that I needed to grow up myself. I got up, dressed myself, and didn't bother putting any make-up on because I knew I would probably be crying. We went into the doctor's office and found out that I was a little over three months pregnant. When the nurse said those seven words, I started to cry. I looked over at my mom and she had tears in her eyes. I didn't know what to think. I wanted it to be a dream, that I would wake up from and everything would be okay. We then listened to the heartbeat, which was really fast. It was really neat and it made us cry some more. The nurses asked me a whole bunch of questions, gave me on some prenatal pills to sample, and then told me to schedule an appointment to come back sometime next week. They acted like it was no big deal. Well, it was, didn't they realize that I was only seventeen years old, a senior, and not even out of high school yet. I could no longer be the carefree cheerleader, who had fun with her friends every weekend, and played beach......

...Egg Baby Reflection Having an egg baby this week has impacted my thinking of having a baby at this age. My experience with my egg baby was positive, but it had its negative sides. It was positive because I got to decorate it making it individual and the process of making the egg itself was fun. Also, I like how a lot of people had an egg and we had to treat it like a real baby; taking care of it, finding a babysitter if needed, it made me feel responsible. But that leads to the negative side. It was negative because I had to carry it around everywhere I went including each class. It’s fine at home, but in school it can be a hassle to carry it around because people try to snatch it out of your hand, try to break it, and your hands are already full with books or binders so it was a little uncomfortable and pretty easy to drop the egg. If I had a child as a teenager, it would impact all my areas of health, meaning I won’t be able to balance all parts of the health star. First, it would impact my life physically, because I would lose my amount of rest from always getting up at night, I would always have to change diapers, feed the baby, and I may not even have time to feed myself! I would also have to teach my baby or help it and bring it almost everywhere with me. During pregnancy, I would gain weight, it would be harder to do things, and I would feel sick because my body is still not grown up, so my body would give the nutrients to me first or I wouldn’t have enough......

...Kingsburg is a small town that sits right in the center of California, in the heart of the Central Valley. It’s full of farmers and small businesses that are passed on from generation to generation. A large majority of the population is migrate workers, whom work the fields with whatever produce is in season. My family comes from a long line of these types of migrate farm workers. My parents would scratch together whatever jobs they could find growing up to help support their families. As my sisters and I grew up, we learned early that hard work doesn’t always cut it in life. My parents helped us understand a strong education, paired with hard work, can take us anywhere. Growing up in Kingsburg, my family background showed that we had two options after high school. Option 1; graduate high school, find a job, work there for a large majority of our lives and retire. Option 2; attempt to go to junior college, drop out, find a job, work there for a large majority of our lives and retire. As a teenager, I remember seeing my aunts, uncles, cousins, and my own parents go through these same options. If I were to describe my family background in one word, it would be repetitiveness. It wasn’t easy to break the cycle of my family background. I credit my parents to keeping me motivated and positive that a better future will come from hard work and education. This solid foundation helped my older sister achieve her Master’s degree, my younger sister to achieve her Master’s degree, and...

...Miss Ever’s Boys Bioethical Writing Assignment In the movie “Miss Ever’s Boys”, the public health service decided in 1932 to conduct a study in Macon County, Alabama to examine the sequences of untreated syphilis in African-American patients by using the facilities of the Tuskegee Institute. African-American people, who lived in poverty and lacked the medical health care were told that they would be given some financial and food assistances and free examinations for “bad blood” a term used to refer to syphilis. Hundreds of African-American were involved in what was known as “The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male”. Though the study was never revealed or explained to them. The disease was never treated even when penicillin became available. The subjects of Penicillin were not afforded the option of getting the shots because depending on the stage of syphilis, penicillin may not be a safe treatment option. They did point to the first study-in-nature that in some people syphilis goes away without treatments. I think it would be unethical today for researchers to conduct an experiment in which some people with syphilis would receive treatments and others wouldn’t. I believe the judging of the Tuskegee study wasn’t fair considering things were different in the 1940s. However, they should have made the African-Americans aware of their real medical status and information about penicillin. The military was even affected by syphilis. Some African-American men......

...Describe how the animal species richness found in the Galeolaria caespitose clump biotype could be affected by pollution Marine ecosystems are known to have rich biodiversity of species and therefore generally thought of as being stable and resilient to natural progressions of the earth (Johnson, Roberts, 2009) Disturbances in the habitat by unnatural means, such as pollution, can harm the balance of these ecosystems as the species are unable to adapt to the unusual contaminants that would not naturally encounter. One part of this ecosystem is the calcareous tubes secreted by the polychaete worm called Galeolaria caespitoa which are found in large clumps on pier pilings and in the intertidal zones of rocky shores (Ladiges et al. 2010). When viewing the calcareous tubes for the first time it appears that there is only one species, the Galeolaria caesplitoa, present but upon further inspection a diverse range of species can be found including annelids, molluscs and arthropods. These species all exist in this clump and benefit from the stability and protection that the clumps provide, but the introduction of a unnatural occurrence such as pollution can affect the way these animal feed, breed and breathe. The main source of pollution that comes into contact with marine ecosystems is sewerage which contains waste materials from everyday human activities such as slaughterhouse wastes, animal remains, domestic wastes, industrial wastes, faecal matter and many others (Islam,......

While a man (John) and women (Nancy) comment the act of sexual affairs, the women has to be in a productive state and her body will discharge one egg for the sperm to residence. John will discharge anywhere from 100 million to 300 million sperms in one conference of intercourse, His sperm must first make their way thru the cervix into the uterus then on to the fallopian tube, the liquid portion of the semen not only provide the sperm but is also use as a nourishment for the journey into the and then swim thru the fallopian tube. As the sperm make it journey they will start to die off, not all sperm will make it to the egg there can only be one victor in this story. There will be a few thousand that will get close during the trip and as they get close the will start to change their patterns with alteration of their heads. The liquid portion of the semen also provides directions for the sperm so they will not wander too far off the path. Any sperm that has not successfully made it thru the cervix is not going to make the complete journey and will release out of the Nancy body after the sex act. For the sperm that make it thru the cervical canal it is greatly welcomed environment the sperm will find that there is an abundance of cervical mucus, the mucus will transport the sperm......

...beautiful babies: Ponijao from Namibia, Mari from Tokyo, Bayar from Mongolia and Hattie from San Francisco. All four babies are surrounded by different macrosystems but display similar developmental patterns regardless of their upbringing. All these children still must go through the same developmental milestones. In the first year of life babies undergo dramatic changes, many of these are observed in this film. All four babies are living in their own microsystems, each very different from one another. Ponijao has a big family consisting of several siblings, Bayar lives with his parents and a brother, and Mari and Hattie are the only children for their parents, which is a typical situation in developed countries. We see the babies going through the Sensorimotor Stages as soon as they were born, they all were breastfed, which is a sign that they had sucking reflexes that are connected with rooting reflex and breastfeeding. There was an episode where Babinski reflex shown: Mari was sitting in her highchair and a family cat playing with baby’s feet. I noticed that Mari had all possible toys to help her to develop mentally and physically, but she also can be seen playing with CDs and cellphones. On the other hand Ponijao was happy to play with sticks, stones beads and a plastic bottle. I saw Bayar unrolling toilet paper and feeling very happy when he finally got to its base, which he immediately put in his mouth (Oral Stage of Sigmund Freud’s Theory). Watching these babies......

The Sperm and the Egg
...Week 1 Assignment: The Sperm and the Egg Nathaniel Morris PSY/265 3/18/2012 Nicole Pansey Week 1 Assignment: The Sperm and the Egg Many of us have heard about the birds and the bees. Most parents find this story to better illustrate how conception happens. When a young child asks their parent “Where do babies come from”, a parent may find it hard to look in their young child’s eyes, and describe exactly what happens. The actual scientific process may be harder to explain, but will be more useful for the child when they get older. It would probably be more effective with a variety of visual aids, and preparation in order to present this to an adolescent. Deciding at what age to tell your child the scientific version should depend on the parent. The “birds and bees story” may be more appropriate for a younger child, and the scientific version can be more explained when they are a little more mature. A girl should know about the sexual reproductive system when she starts menstruating. If she is not taught properly, she may not understand what is going on with her body, and may wind up pregnant at an early age. In order to explain the scientific version, first, you would have to start out by explaining the immediate male and female body parts that are involved; the penis and vagina. The inner part of the vagina consists of two ovaries, the cervix, and the uterus that are all connected to the uterus by the fallopian tubes. These are all structures that make up......

En esta historia se relata el secuestro de una niña de 4 años que vivía en una zona marginal, donde dos detectives se ven inmersos en una investigación. Vemos como el protagonista toma decisiones tan duras y contradictorias a la ideología que lo rige como persona. Esto nos demuestra que aun siendo una persona justa y llena de valores morales, nos vemos envueltos en un dilema que solo ocasionan un conflicto entre lo bueno y lo correcto, y que debamos acudir a acciones justas pensando en el futuro. Este pensamiento lo podemos relacionar desde un punto de vista microeconómico, cuando el gobierno pone un impuesta o un precio tope, sabemos que este causará muchos problemas en el mercado de competencia, pero no nos ponemos a pensar que el gobierno no solo lo está pensando desde el punto de vista económico presente sino también futuro. Está pensando en el bienestar de la sociedad, y no siempre lo correcto es lo justo para todos. Tener en nuestras manos el bien y el mal; las decisiones correctas o aquellas que no lo son siempre representan en nosotros un papel difícil y más aún cuando en nuestras manos está el bienestar del otro o la desdicha. Los modelos económicos nos sirven para saber si ante un determinado cambio, el individuo queda en una mejor o una peor situación que la original, y cuánto ha cambiado su bienestar.
