Xie, Hongling; Cairns, Beverley D.; Cairns, Robert B.
Social Development, v10 n4 p488-511 2001
Examined 475 adolescents from Grade 7 through early adulthood to identify antecedents and pathways of teen parenthood. Found that teen fatherhood and motherhood were predicted by individual and peer configurations such as a combination of high aggression, low academic competence, low popularity, and low family SES. Peer characteristics, race, and family SES assumed unique roles in predicting teen motherhood. (Author/KB)
