Pianta, Robert C.; Lopez-Hernandez, Cristina; Ferguson, Julie E.
Early Education and Development, v8 n4 p377-87 Oct 1997
Examined differences in child-mother interaction, classroom adjustment during kindergarten, and retention in kindergarten between 41 first-born children of adolescent mothers and 88 first-born children of adult mothers. Found that the children of adolescent and adult mothers were generally indistinguishable in areas of classroom adjustment, retention in kindergarten, and child-mother interaction when mothers' education was considered.
