Fathering tied to sexual behavior in daughters

This article suggests that high-quality parenting from a girl's father can reduce risky sexual decision making later in life.

Comparing sisters in the same family, the study showed that living for longer periods of time with a dad who provided high-quality fathering reduced risky sexual behavior.

More time with a dad who provided low-quality fathering actually increased risky sexual behavior.

The article doesn't tell us what "high-quality fathering" is, but I look forward to reading the article when it is published.
