The study found that adolescents and their family members can accept their illegitimate children and are ready to look after the child. There are similarities between them in terms of education, management and welfare, emotions and feelings as well as moral and attitudinal changes. However, there are differences in the aspects of illegitimate child care among adolescents and family members who are unable to maintain the children and this had caused them to send the children to host family.
