  1. Adolescent sexual risk-taking behavior in single-parent ethnic minority families.

    Article - En anglais

    Relationships of maternal sexual behavior, mother-adolescent communication about sex, and maternal attitudes about adolescent sexuality to adolescent sexual risk-taking behavior were examined in a sample of 397 Black and Hispanic families headed by single mothers.

    Some support emerged for a positive relationship between maternal sexual risk-taking behavior and adolescent risk-taking behavior ; however, when considered in the context of communication about sex and maternal attitudes about adolescent sexuality, the relationship was no longer significant.

    When the process of sexual communication between a mother and an adolescent was open and receptive, less adolescent risk-taking behavior was reported.

    The role of single mothers in influencing their adolescents'sexual behavior is discussed.
