A survey on college students’ extracurricular reading is conducted with 938 questionnaires distributed to randomly chosen year 1-5 college students from every colleges in South China University of Technology(SCUT). Based on survey results drawn by data statistics from 836 valid questionnaires, this paper sums up characteristics and existing problems of college students' extracurricular reading, and puts forward some suggestions. The survey finds that, although current college students are willing to do extracurricular reading, and have also strong self-learning ability, they, affected by heavy academic burdens and temptation of network, are forced to do extracurricular reading mainly in dormitory or bathroom in the evening, at night or at weekend, and their time in reading non profession-related books are less, their reading quantities are small and without a reading plan, with which students are dissatisfactory. Therefore, measures should be taken as follows in universities and colleges: further promote an awareness of the relationship between extracurricular reading and talents all-round development, timely adjust curriculum to allow students more extracurricular self-study time, appropriately guide students in making extracurricular reading plan, so as to enhance college student’s extracurricular reading time, quantity and efficiency, to make extracurricular reading in better service for talents cultivation.</p> Jianxin Zhou ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-06-25 2022-06-25 1 12 10.9734/jesbs/2022/v35i730433 Life-Changing Coping Mechanisms and Resilience Strategies of Post-Natal Unmarried Teenage Mothers in the Central Region, Ghana https://journaljesbs.com/index.php/JESBS/article/view/30434 <p><strong>Aim:</strong> The paper aimed at exploring the life-changing coping and interventional strategies adopted by unmarried teenage mothers in Enyan Denkyira in the Central Region of Ghana.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The paper adopted the phenomenological design and through Snowballing and Purposive techniques, sampled 15 unmarried teenage mothers, 10 church leaders, and 2 District Assembly officials who accounted for their daily coping mechanisms and interventional strategies existing for teenage mothers in the Enyan Denkyira District.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The study revealed that teenage mothers in Enyan Denkyira continued to engage in labor-intensive occupations such as fetching water for construction works and washing other people's clothes to make ends meet. It was evident that when the support they got from sympathizers did not come and their other sources of income also failed, they were pushed into relying on men which made them become perpetual victims of unprepared pregnancy and premature motherhood.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> It was therefore recommended that the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) money should be expanded to benefit more teenage mothers. Also, religious bodies, institutions, and the family must be encouraged and supported by the government to continue to play their roles as sources of social protection for teenage mothers instead of neglecting them.</p> Jacob Oppong Nkansah Mark Opoku Ababio Kofi Awuviry-Newton ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-06-30 2022-06-30 13 26 10.9734/jesbs/2022/v35i730434
