Examined cross-generational influences of adolescent parenthood on psychosocial functioning with a random sample of adolescent mothers in state care due to child abuse/neglect in their family of origin. Found that participants whose main parenting figure was an adolescent parent reported higher parenting stress and lower educational attainment than participants whose main parenting figure was not an adolescent. Groups did not differ in childbearing history or past substitute care experience. (Author/KB)
