Abstract

[automatically translated] The literature highlights how teenage mothers encounter many difficulties and evolutionary adaptation. Early motherhood, in fact, appears as an interruption of the normative developmental course of young mothers, who face contemporary and incoherent evolutionary challenges. An early transition to parenthood also involves, frequently, difficulty adjusting to parental role, manifested in a significant increase in stress experienced during the exercise of the parental role and in a significant impairment of parenting skills. These processes, however, can be properly understood only if you refer to the relational dynamics, ecological and context in which they decline and from which they are modeled. The work presented here examines some of these processes, focusing on the effect of the variables related to bond with the baby's father and the support offered by the family of origin. From the literature on the subject it emerges as, for young mothers, adaptation to parenting and its exercise, as they pass characterized by substantial aspects of risk, not always and not necessarily hesitate in unfavorable evolutionary paths. Maternal resilience, family resources and contextual, in fact, intertwined their influence to enable possible protective processes. One of the main tasks of scientific research is, therefore, to further study the dynamics of this particular transition, to develop better preventive and clinical interventions. focusing on the effect of the variables related to bond with the baby's father and the support offered by the family of origin.
