Dittus, Patricia J.; Gordon, Vivian V.; Jaccard, James
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v26 n4 p445-65 Aug 1997
The impact the father's attitude toward premarital sexual intercourse has on the sexual behavior of the father's adolescent child was studied with approximately 750 inner-city African American youth. Results showed that adolescent perceptions of paternal attitudes were predictive of teen sexual behavior independent of perceptions of maternal attitudes. (SLD)
