ABSTRACT
Parent-adolescent sexual communication (PASC) has received considerable attention from researchers for at least 30 years. This research has been useful to describe the content, extent, and timing of conversations parents have with their adolescents. However, much of this research has been conducted outside the field of Communication. As a result, the communication variable has been poorly operationalized. In this paper, I review the extant literature on PASC and then recommend future directions for Family Communication researchers. This paper collapses literature from several disciplines and provides a launching point from which new research can increase and multiply. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
