Abstract

Data from a convenience sample of 476 detained adolescents were used to examine the relationship between family influences and biologically confirmed sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Results indicated that frequent parental monitoring was negatively associated with STD infection and that this relationship was modified by age, gender, and race. Findings suggest that STD prevention efforts for detained adolescents (particularly high-risk minority females older than age 16) might focus on increasing monitoring by a parent or parental figure.
