Hanson, Richard A.
Adolescence, v25 n99 p629-43 Fall 1990
Examined initial parenting attitudes of 28 pregnant adolescents. Pregnant adolescents scored significantly lower on "expectations for children" construct of Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory than all groups of controls. Adolescents who placed babies for adoption had significantly lower scores on role-reversal measure; differences between keepers and placers were not significant on expectations, empathy, and corporal punishment dimensions.
