CRIADO MORALES, María Lucenith et al. Beliefs and attitudes of health workers about tuberculosis in a locality, Bogotá. Rev. Univ. Ind. Santander. Salud [online]. 2011, vol.43, n.1, pp.63-69. ISSN 0121-0807.

Introduction: The increase of the teenager pregnant woman led us to study as a complement the families of the teenager father presenting the following question: What is the effectiveness of the family's functionality as far as teenager fathers are concerned in order to determine the effectiveness of their functionality. Methodology: It was a transversal descriptive study done with 90 families of teenager fathers in which the socio-demographic index was applied as well as the instrument known as The Effectiveness of the Family's Functionality (Friedemann). Results: The teenager fathers (41.1%) from secondary education institutions work (67.8%). As far as the couples living together apply: 45.6% nuclear family, and (56.7%) in situations known as "free union"; in the groups of 4 and 6 people (57.8%) and in the groups of a monthly economic income of a minimum salary (63.3%) and only a 2.2% applied to a high level. Conclusion: We arrived to the conclusion that 64.4% are families with difficulties in the family organization and growth. Salud UIS 2011; 43(1): 63-69.
