Teen pregnancy is a complex issue. Young mothers face negative effects on educational attainment and earnings irrespective of their social backgrounds. Findings from population welfare studies also show that teenage mothers from better-off backgrounds can experience a heightened level of these restrictions in comparison to their counterparts from disadvantaged neighborhoods. The delay in having children for women improves their opportunities for higher education attainment and earnings. Nevertheless, the choices are not always straightforward for mothers given that different socioeconomic perspectives and influences affect choices and circumstances faced by the teen mother population.
