Mother and father as Academics program increases kids’ life in Rochester NY

At 15 yrs aged, Ronnique Loving watched criminal justice tv displays and imagined herself attending college and starting to be a attorney.

At that very same age, Loving discovered she was expecting.

“Young ones at my college would be pregnant at 15 or 14,” Loving stated. “I would inform my Mother, ‘You hardly ever have to fret about that being me.’ Then it transpired.”

Loving grew nervous she would fall short to raise her youngster nicely. 

“I was really frightened,” stated Loving, now 17. “I was worried to provide my daughter into confusion. I failed to want her to be right here and me not know what I am undertaking.

At the time, Loving attended the Rochester Metropolis Faculty District’s Youthful Mothers application on Hart Road. Just one day, she met Kendra Farrier, and the pair went on to form a strong bond — a relationship that crafted a village of help that helped Loving triumph over her parenthood fears. 

Kendra Farrier is a dad or mum educator at the local YWCA’s Mother and father as Academics system.
