To Parent or Relinquish: Consequences for Adolescent Mothers.
McLaughlin, Steven D.; And Others
Social Work, v33 n4 p320-24 Jul-Aug 1988
Surveyed adolescent mothers who placed their children for adoption (N=146) and adolescent mothers who parented their children (N=123). Found mothers who relinquished children were more likely to complete vocational training, delay marriage, be employed after births, and live in higher income households than mothers who did not; found few differences in self-esteem and satisfaction.
