Mum's the Word: Mothers' Perspectives on Communication about Sexuality with Adolescents.
Rosenthal, Doreen A.; Feldman, S. Shirley; Edwards, Danielle
Journal of Adolescence, v21 n6 p727-43 Dec 1998
Interviews mothers of 16-year olds to examine the style, content, and frequency of their communications with their adolescents about sex and sexuality. Qualitative analysis reveals five communication styles: avoidance, reactive, opportunistic, child-initiated, and mutually interactive. Styles differ in who initiates and maintains sexual communication, and in comfort levels, frequency of sexual communications, and context in which discussions take place. (Author/JDM)
