Sikiru Adesina WST 394 Prof. Robyn Deluca JAA 2 - Influence of family type and parenting behaviors on teenage sexual behavior and conceptions. [Bonell, C.,  Allen, E., Strange, V., Oakley, A., Copas, A., Johnson, A., & Stephenson, J. 2006] Premarital precursors of marital infidelity. [Allen, E.S., Rhoades, G.K., Stanley, S.M., Markman, H.J., Williams, T.,  Melton, J., & Clements, M.L. 2008]  Sexuality in children and adolescents with disabilities. [Murphy, N., & Young, P.C. – 2005.] This paper will review three separate studies and provide a very subjective critique of each. The first that will be touched upon is one that I found interesting yet not without faults. It attempts to identify a correlation between an individual’s sexual behavior and their upbringing (child of a lone parent or teenage mother with socioeconomic status (SES) taken into consideration). The second is a reading that I found very difficult to credit as a reliable source, in my opinion are there too many holes and “what if’s” that dented the integrity of the study as a whole. It analyzed the “premarital precursors of marital fidelity.” The third was by far my favorite. The term saving the best for last could probably not be used to fit a better moment. Reading the about the sexual urges and societal dilemma’s that face disabled people was a completely new frontier for me. I realized how ignorant I had been to assume that disabled people were asexual because of a handicap. The first article to be dissected is the “Influence of family type and parenting behaviors on teenage sexual behavior and conceptions” written by Bonell, C., Allen, E., Strange, V., Oakley, A., Copas, A., Johnson, A., & Stephenson, J. in the year 2006 . As the title suggests, this study set out to recognize the possible connection of teenage sexual behavior and family type, however what makes this particular piece unique is that socioeconomic status was factored into the research. By examining the two

primary exposures, lone parent family and teenage mother initiated family in a longitudinal study, the researchers were able test their hypothesis that “young people for from lone parent and teenage mother families are, adjusting for SES more likely to have sex, not use contraception at first sex and initiate a pregnancy by age 15/16” (502). The results of the study indicate that “girls and boys from lone parent

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
