This chapter introduces the book’s main questions: What norms about teen sexuality are being communicated to U.S. teens by their families, friends, schools, and communities? How are these norms conveyed and enforced? And what strategies do teens use to negotiate the normative pressures they experience? The chapter previews the book’s new ideas about norms and social control and its real-world approach to understanding norms by studying the in-depth case of U.S. teen sexuality. The chapter describes teen sex, teen pregnancy, and teen parenthood and how they have changed over time. It closes with a description of the book’s interviews with college students and teen parents and an overview of chapters.

Keywords:   norm, social control, teen sex, teen pregnancy, teen parenthood
