Adolescent Sexual Behavior in Two Ethnic Minority Samples: The Role of Family Variables.
Miller, Kim S.; Forehand, Rex; Kotchick, Beth A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n1 p85-98 Feb 1999
Findings indicate that family-structure variables (family income, parental education, marital status) failed to predict adolescent sexual behavior. In contrast, each family process variable (maternal monitoring, mother-adolescent general communication, maternal attitudes about adolescent sexual behavior) predicted multiple indices of adolescent sexual behavior and risk due to sexual behavior.
