PSY304 Week 2 Discussion 1
Based on your personal and vicarious experiences, assess whether you agree with this research or not. Support your explanation with supporting examples or with scholarly citations.
I do not agree with this research completely. I do not think that having a close relationship with your parents has a significant influence with a teen initiating sex or not. I personally think that it is the people and the environment that influences how teenagers feel and think about sex. Peer pressure can have a significant impact on a teenager’s sexual encounters. “It also seems to give those in early adolescence some prestige with peers, meaning that peers are more likely to look up to someone who is “dating” rather than not”[ CITATION Shr14 \l 1033 ]. My parents raised six children, three girls and three boys. The boys were the ones that initiated sex at an early age.
