  • 20. Homework Assignment #1
    • I would like to examine the role of parent-adolescent communication about sexuality (e.g. puberty, contraception, sexual health, homosexuality) on adolescent sexual behaviors. I am particularly interested in how Latino mothers and daughters communicate about sexuality. Cultural values and the length of time in the U.S. may play a role in how much mothers communicate with their daughters. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Latinas have the highest rate of teen births in the U.S. Such statistics highlight the importance to understand what influences such behaviors.
