Author information

Department of Human Services.


Teenage pregnancy is examined from the perspective of a number of studies conducted with teenage fathers. Five commonly held myths about teenage fathers are contradicted by the research. Data on sexual knowledge and behavior, attitudes toward marriage and child rearing, psychological variables, and consequences of fatherhood are presented and implications for mental health practitioners are discussed.
