Abstract

This study utilized a descriptive/comparative survey research design. Using purposive sampling technique, 50 adolescents, where 25 students are third year and 25 students are fourth year, and the remaining 25 parents out of 50 parents, where 25 were parents of fourth year students were selected. The study was limited to students living with their parents. Data was gathered through a standardized questionnaire, which was adopted and modified to fit the study. The statistical treatments utilized in data analysis were mean and Pearson’s r. The study concluded that, 1) The variables body image concerns, sexual knowledge, sexual interests, risky behavior/misuse and deviant sexual behavior do not affect the sexual behaviors of adolescence, indicated by the average mean level of 0.55; 2) The variables body image concerns, sexual knowledge, sexual interests, risky behavior/misuse and deviant sexual behavior do not affect the sexual behaviors of adolescence as perceived by their parents as indicated by the mean level of 0.49; 3) The overall obtained r of -0.02 means that there is a very small negative correlation. Therefore, there is no significant relationship between the sexual behaviors of adolescence based on self-assessment and as perceived by their parents.
