This chapter looks at parental efforts to provide health and sexual socialization to their children. The socialization efforts of parents are shaped by cultural and social class factors, as are the larger family patterns to affect children’s health. This chapter places the efforts of parents to socialize their children within the larger context of family life –e.g., single-parents, poverty, intergenerational households—as well as neighbourhood context.

Keywords:   children’s health, socialization, single-parents, family life, poverty, intergenerational households
