Abstract

Adolescent pregnancy was examined as to whether or not its impact on the family was distinguishable from that associated with adolescence in general. The perceptions of a group of thirty-two (32) pregnant adolescents and their thirteen (13) mothers was analyzed. The Family Assessment Device (FAD) was applied to indicate the teenagers' and their mothers' recollection of family functioning before and after the pregnancy. Mean scores were collected within and across the scales which made it possible to compare the subject's perception prior to and after the pregnancy occurred. Results indicated there were no significant differences found on the scales before and after the pregnancy, nor between mothers' and daughters' perceptions of family functioning.
