Abstract

The current study is based on these main principles: adolescent mothers are at risk for financial strain (Pogarsky et al., 2006), adolescent mothers are at risk for depression (Lanzi et al., 2009), and these risks can influence the interactions a mother has with her child (Jaffee et al., 2001). This study will consider current research in the area of adult mothering and teen mothering, maternal depression and financial strain. The purpose of the study will be to examine the relationship between financial strain, depression and mother-child interactions with adolescent and adult mothers with low levels of education.
