ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the involvement of parents in the sex education of their teenage children in California. According to the literature, parent-child communication on sexuality diminishes the incidence of early unplanned pregnancy and nurturing parental skills in sex education is one of the most essential factors in shaping adolescent sexual behavior. The author cites a method by which media intervention and community organization is interrelated. In 1980, the Office of Family Planning of the state launched the Family Communication Project (FCP) which was designed to help parents in educating their children about sex, thereby addressing the teenage pregnancy issue. FCP was created as an organizational in thrust, with multicultural radio and television advertisements and publicities.
