dc.description.abstractAccording to the Texas Department of Health (1995), an infant is born to an adolescent mother in Texas every 11 minutes. Inazu and Fox (1980) suggested that the mother-daughter relationship is primary in accounting for teenage sexual knowledge and behavior. The theoretical framework of the study was based on Bandura's (1977) theory of social learning. The data were collected in a north Texas women's health clinic from the charts of pregnant women who registered for prenatal care. The instrument used to collect the data was a one-page questionnaire that collected demographic data and the age of the pregnant client and the age of her mother at first pregnancy. The hypothesis stated that there is a positive correlation between a mother's age at first pregnancy and her daughter's age at first pregnancy. The correlation was $r={-}.213,\ p=.07$; therefore, the study hypothesis was not supported.
