Parenting can be one of the toughest jobs for a mother and father to overcome. Parental strategies, practices, attitudes, and supervision can have a dramatic effect on a child’s viewpoints, attitudes and actions in life. In a recent study, the effects of parental practices, attitudes, and television mediation on adolescent sexual behaviors were investigated. In the study, participants ranged in age from 12 to 16 years old. The sample was almost evenly divided between males (52%) and females (48%) of all different races.
