Feldman, S. Shirley; Rosenthal, Doreen A.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v10 n2 p119-50 2000
Examined parents' and teenagers' evaluations of parents as sex educators; convergence among evaluations; and relevant communication factors. Found that teens evaluated mothers more positively than fathers, daughters evaluated mothers more positively than did sons, and parents evaluated themselves more positively than did their children. Concluded that to improve parents' effectiveness as sex educators, their communication skills should be improved. (Author/KB)
