The Influence of Parental Support, Depressed Affect, and Peers on the Sexual Behaviors of Adolescent Girls.
Whitbeck, Les B.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n2 p261-78 Jun 1993
Used longitudinal data from 76 adolescent girls and their parents to investigate effects of parental warmth and supportiveness on adolescents' depressed affect, attitudes about sexuality, peer influence, and sexual experience. Girls with more emotionally distant parents were more likely to manifest symptoms of depression. Depressed affect was associated with sexually permissive attitudes and having sexually active friends.
