Miller, Brent C.; Benson, Brad; Galbraith, Kevin A.
Developmental Review, v21 n1 p1-38 Mar 2001
Summarizes research on parental influences on risk of adolescents becoming pregnant or causing a pregnancy. Findings are most consistent that parent-child closeness, parental supervision/regulation of children's activities, and parents' values against teen intercourse decrease risk. Findings about parent-child sexual communication are inconsistent. Additional risk factors include family structure, SES, sexually active/pregnant/parenting teen siblings, and timing of puberty.
