Students' Perceptions of Parent-Adolescent Closeness and Communication about Sexuality: Relations with Sexual Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behaviors.
Somers, Cheryl L.; Paulson, Sharon E.
Journal of Adolescence, v23 n5 p629-44 Oct 2000
Adolescents (N=157) from two suburban high schools in the Midwest were surveyed about whether parent-adolescent closeness and communication about sexuality were associated with three aspects of sexuality (knowledge, attitudes, and behavior). Contrary to expectation, higher levels of parental closeness and communication did not have a significant influence on these adolescents' sexuality. Implications concerning the timing of communication became evident. (Author/JDM)
