Abstract (Summary)

Teen pregnancy continues to be an increasing problem in the United States, especially among the Latino population. Latinos now have the highest birth rate in the nation. Although many teen pregnancy prevention programs have been developed to decrease this rate, they have failed to incorporate parents as primary sex educators. Throughout the literature, factors such as culture; family values; and lack of knowledge about sexual issues, including contraception use, decreased communication skills, and barriers to communication have all played a substantial role in a parent's inability to engage in conversations about sex. This project introduces an educational curriculum and resource guide for parents that will provide them with the communication skills necessary to educate their teenagers about sex and pregnancy prevention.
