Smith, Delores E.; And Others
Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, v23 n2 p183-97 Dec 1994
Self-esteem measures were administered to 100 pregnant/parenting or never-pregnant adolescents; 41 were African American and 59 European American. Self-esteem was associated with pregnancy for the latter but not the former. Never-pregnant European American girls scored significantly higher than pregnant/parenting European Americans on 10 of 12 self-esteem measures. (SK)
