Parent-Adolescent Discussions about Sex and Condoms: Impact on Peer Influences of Sexual Risk Behavior.
Whitaker, Daniel J.; Miller, Kim S.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v15 n2 p251-73 Mar 2000
Examined how parent-adolescent communication about initiating sex and using condoms influenced the relationship between peer norms and behavior among African American and Hispanic adolescents. Found that peer norms were more strongly related to behavior among adolescents who had not discussed sex or condoms. Communication was also related to teens naming a parent as the best information source about sex. (Author/KB)
