Survey dovetail with the findings of peer-reviewed research into parent-child communication.
The survey hints at two important issues that other research also addresses: parents discussing condoms with their teens before young people initiate sexual intercourse and differences in parent-child communication that shortchange young men. A study of to year-old adolescents and their mothers underscores the importance of the timing of parent-child discussions about using condoms.
Many studies found that mothers are ificantly more likely than fathers to discuss sexuality with their children. In one study, just over 54 percent of students reported discussing HIV with a parent.
