Interviewed adolescent girls regarding their images of motherhood. Respondents attached importance to mothers' traditional orientation and relational and self-assertive orientation. They expected to be moderately traditional themselves but more self-assertive and relational. They viewed ideal mothers as less traditional then themselves and more self-assertive and relational. Their images of motherhood correlated strongly with images of their own mothers. (SM)
