Attitudinal Factors Related to Release for Adoption among Teen - age Unwed Mothers
Mi Hyun Yoon,Jae Yeon Lee
The attitudes toward release for adoption of 130 teen-age unwed korean mothers were studied with the use of the donnelly and Voydanoff(1991) scale of attitudes about release for adoption and expectations regarding parenthood. Data were analyzed by t-test. While there were no socio-demographic differences between the 10.7% of mothers who planned on keeping their babies and the 89.3% who planned on release for adoption, the group choosing release for adoption thought they didn`t have the ability to rear their babies and they took a negative attitude toward pregnancy compared with the group choosing to keep their babies. The group opting for release for adoption supposed that child rearing will interfere with their education, and they have a negative attitude about child rearing in general.
