Helping Mothers Discuss Sexuality and AIDS with Adolescents.
Lefkowitz, Eva S.; Sigman, Marian; Au, Terry Kit-fong
Child Development, v71 n5 p1383-94 Sep-Oct 2000
Examined impact of experimentally altering mothers' style when discussing sexuality and AIDS with adolescent children. Found that intervention group mothers reduced their amount of speaking, asked more open-ended questions, acted less judgmental, and discussed dating and sexuality more than did control group mothers. Intervention group adolescents reported increased discussions of birth control and daily comfort talking to their mothers. (Author/KB)
