Parents, Teens, and Sex

Ask parents, "Who most influences your teen's sexual decisions?" and they say their kids' friends or the media.

Ask teens who's most influential and their No. 1 answer is:
"My parents."

Teenagers "may fuss or stare out the window when you discuss sex, but even the poorest kids in the most chaotic environment said their parents are very influential," Brown says.

Ironically, "the more parents talk about sexual health, the less sex kids have," Juzang adds.
