Frodi, Ann; And Others
Adolescence, v25 n98 p363-74 Sum 1990
Compared infant-mother attachment and mastery motivation in babies born to adolescent and adult mothers. Found more, although not significantly so, securely attached infants among those born to adult than to adolescent mothers. Infants of adolescent mothers were significantly more persistent than infants of adult mothers, although they were affectively less positive during toy play. (Author/NB)
