Is Older Better? Adolescent Parenthood and Maltreatment.
Massat, Carol Rippey
Child Welfare, v74 n2 p325-36 Mar-Apr 1995
Analyzed findings of previous studies of the adolescent parent population to determine the relationship between age of parent and maltreatment, and whether adolescent parents are overrepresented within the maltreating and foster care populations. Found that adolescents are not overrepresented, suggesting that programs for adolescents should focus on issues other than potential maltreatment. (BAC)
