Are Adolescents Talking with Their Parents about Sex before Becoming Sexually Active? Fact Sheet
Leuschner, Kristin
RAND Corporation
This paper examines parent-child discussions of sexual behavior. It finds consistency in the timing and content of such discussions; however, many parents and children do not discuss key topics, such as birth control, before adolescents become sexually active. [This fact sheet is based on Megan K. Beckett, Marc N. Elliott, Steven Martino, David E. Kanouse, Rosalie Corona, David J. Klein, Mark A. Schuster, "Timing of Parent and Child Communication about Sexuality Relative to Children's Sexual Behaviors," "Pediatrics", vol. 125, no. 1, 2010, pp. 34-42.]
