Abstract

The relationship between family and sexual activity-related factors were measured among 522 African American adolescent girls recruited from schools and clinics in Birmingham, Alabama. Girls living with a mother in a supportive family were more likely to use condoms when having sex, less likely to have recent emotional abuse from their sex partners, less fear and higher self-efficacy in negotiating use of a condom, and fewer partner-related barriers to safer sex.
