East, Patricia L.
Child Development, v67 n2 p267-82 Apr 1996
Compared attitudes, expectations, and behaviors of early adolescent girls with an adolescent childbearing sister to those of girls with nonchildbearing adolescent sisters. Found that the younger sisters of childbearing adolescents were consistently different from those of nonchildbearing adolescents on key characteristics known to be correlated with early sexual activity and adolescent childbearing.
