This article presents an abstract of the article "Parents beliefs about condoms and oral contraceptives: are they medically accurate?" by M.E. Eisenberg, L.H. Bearinger, R.E. Sieving, C. Swain and M.D. Resnick published in a 2004 issue of the "Perspectives on Sexual Health and Reproductive Health." The research aims to uncover the impact of parent-child communication regarding sexuality. The study was a telephone survey and the characteristics of its sample are described. There was no consistent pattern of responses based according to religious affiliation. The study reveals why parents are mistaken when they believe that teenagers cannot use condoms or the pill correctly.
