dc.description.abstractThis study assesses the relationship between parental warmth and monitoring in early childhood and later risky sex outcomes among a sample of African American adolescents. I use the Family and Community Health Study (FACHS) to examine the effects of variables related to both social control and self-control theories to determine which theory provides a better explanation for this relationship. Findings suggest that family structure, parental monitoring, self-control, community control, and friend’s deviance are all associated with risky sex outcomes among African American adolescents in the sample. For females, living with a single mom, low levels of parental monitoring, and low levels of self-control at wave 1 are associated with more risky sex by wave 4. For males, living with a mom and step dad, having deviant friend’s, and low levels of community control at wave 1 are associated with more risky sex outcomes by wave 4.
