Barth, Richard P.; And Others
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v12 n6 p471-87 Dec 1983
Results of a survey of adolescent mothers, pregnant teenagers, and nonpregnant and nonparenting adolescents suggest that adolescent mothers and pregnant teenagers are less distressed by their situation than was once thought. Social supports and socioeconomic status predicted psychological well-being better than parenting status. (Author/BW)
