I'm looking for studies done on interactions between teen mothers and their infants, specifically in areas of high crime/low income. I am coming up with not much besides some NICU studies and stuff on education... but I'm looking more for information on the parent/child relationship and how it differs/does not differ from older mothers and their children. It's for school so I'd appreciate any input :)

Try scholar.google.com. Search for teen motherhood, poverty, and crime. You may come up with some results. I also start at Wiki (stifle your groans) and scroll right down to the reference section to find some sources.

No problem! The content in Wiki articles is some times skewed, but it's a great jumping ground to actually get your hands on some good references.
