Danziger, Sandra K.
Children and Youth Services Review, v17 n1-2 p183-202 1995
Compares the relative plausibility of family processes and schooling opportunities as factors associated with sex and motherhood in poor communities. Suggests that young women who delayed onset of sexual activity, and who stayed at school even as teen mothers, had more positive perceptions of being students and of receiving family encouragement and supervision than those with early sexual activity.
