Quality of Adolescent Mother-Infant Interactions and Clinical Determinations of Risk Status.
Brophy-Herb, Holly E.; Honig, Alice Sterling
Early Child Development and Care, v152 p17-26 May 1999
Observed 37 pairs of low-income adolescent mothers and infants over a 6-month period to determine efficacy of clinical determinations of risk. Found that maternal-risk status was significantly associated with more sensitive parenting behaviors including responsiveness to infant cues and to infant distress, and social, emotional, and cognitive growth-fostering behaviors.
