We investigated predictors of parental comfort with young children and adolescent sexual learning. A nonclinical sample of fathers (n=70) and mothers (n=150) was utilized. Predictors of parental comfort were garnered from the Sexual Attitudes Scale (Hudson, et al., 1983), the Sexual Opinions Survey (Fisher, et al., 1988), the Sex Education Inventory (Bennett & Dickenson, 1980), the Questionnaire on Young Children’s Sexual Learning (Brick & Koch, 1996) and the Questionnaire on Adolescent’s Sexual Learning.
