Description

Keywords:

Communication, Adolescents, Parents

Background:

The following ten-item scale can be used to assess the quality of communication between an adolescent and his/her parent/s concerning issues of sex (Miller et al., 1998). The respondent (adolescent) is asked each question for his/her mother and father separately unless the respondent is from a single parent family. This is one of several scales reported in Miller et al., 1998.
