Parent-Adolescent Communication about Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Use.
Miller-Day, Michelle A.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v17 n6 p604-16 Nov 2002
Describes a study that questioned adolescents about their parent-adolescent conversations regarding alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. Notes that fewer than half had engaged in such a conversation and that more adolescents preferred talking with their mothers than with other family members. Advocates a clearer definition of the parent-adolescent conversation, discusses implications for targeting mothers as prevention agents, and introduces risk socialization theory. (Author)
