Reproductive health education for adolescents: Parents’ outlook
Reproductive health education for adolescents is a challenge globally. Adolescence is a development period between the onset of puberty and the establishment of social independence. The present cross sectional study aimed to understand the parents’ perspective on imparting reproductive health education to adolescents in schools. 60 parents of school going adolescent children were interviewed with the help of an interview guide. Findings of the study revealed that the parents favored the idea of imparting reproductive health education to adolescents in schools by the teachers. The study highlighted the requirement of specialized knowledge and module for imparting reproductive health education in conjunction with the social norms of society.
