Contrasts in the Self-Esteem of Unwed Teenage Mothers.
Streetman, Lee G.
Adolescence, v22 n86 p459-64 Sum 1987
Measured self-esteem of 93 unmarried adolescent females upon entry into several state-sponsored training programs. Discovered significant differences concerning the impact of early motherhood on subjects. Symbolic importance of motherhood, as a passage into adult status, and intervening effects of normative group anchorage may mediate between individuals' cognitive ability and their level of self-esteem.
