Abstract: This study aimed to develop a model for parent-adolescent daughter communication about sexuality (PDCS). The subjects were 18 mother-doughter pairs. The females were 12-13 years old studying in the 7th grade of a secondary school in Bangkok. The model had 3 parts: 1) the process of PDCS development, 2) the essential components, characteristics and patterns of PDCS and 3) the impact of the program. The model was examined using both quantitative (paired ttest) and qualitative (content analysis) methods. The inputs, assessing the guardian and adolescent female factors, included sexuality knowledge, understanding of the daughter's sexual development, attitudes regarding talking about sexuality, perceptions regarding communication and the maternal-daughter relationship, and uncomfortable feelings and confidence in ability to talk about sexuality. The processes included: 1) raising awareness and enhancing positive attitudes about PDCS, 2) establishing sexual knowledge and development, 3) establishing a maternal- daughter relationship and 4) training in reciprocal PDCS skills. The output was modification of maternal and daughter communication skills that occurred during the shared discussion and reflection process. The outcomes reflected 4 aspects: feelings toward PDCS, characteristics of PDCS, sexual knowledge, and maternal-daughter relationship. The model was successful in guardian implementation and networking were established on their own with the cooperation of both subjects in accordance with their likenesses, abilities, and competencies. There was little assistance needed from the researcher or teacher to support self reliance with the PDCS.
