Abstract:

This study is an endeavor to connect mass communication research regarding parental mediation of television with interpersonal research concerning topic avoidance in adolescence. A total of forty-four families (mother, father, and adolescent) participated in this study. The results indicated that adolescents reported a negative correlation between topic avoidance and discussing violent television programming with both parents. For the adolescent, as topic avoidance increased with either parent negative mediation about violence decreased. For the topic of sex, a negative relationship between topic avoidance and parental mediation was found for the father only. Furthermore, mothers engaged in more negative mediation of sex and violence than fathers regardless of the adolescentsí gender. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.
