dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine whether there was a relationship between the level of loneliness. the degree of social support, and perceived locus of control of adolescent mothers. An ex-post facto correlational design was used in this study to examine whether there was a relationship between the variables. Results of this study revealed no significant relationships between level of loneliness, so~ial support, and locus of control. However, when social support was broken down into family total functional support and peer total functional support, some significant relationships were found. Family support was found to be related to decreased levels of loneliness for adolescent •others. Peer support was found to have a curvilinear relationship with loneliness, demonstrating that increasing peer suppori is associated with ·decreasing loneliness until a certain point, beyond which loneliness increases.en_US
