Do mothers talk to their daughters about sexuality?

Ariza Binti Mohamed, Jannathul Firdous, Nurul Atiqah Binti Samuri, Sharifah Syaza.

Abstract
Background: Online sexual grooming is now widespread, and parents have to monitor and talk to their children about these issues and warn them against it.

Aims and Objectives: This study was to know whether mothers talk to their young daughters about sex and sexuality to looks at how mothers perceive giving sexual education to children of a younger age.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, self-administered questionnaires were distributed to 76 participants who have daughters from 7 to 12 years old. The data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences V.19. Median score for knowledge, attitude, and practice was compared and correlated with each other.

Results: More than one-third of mothers had poor knowledge on sexuality and sexual abuse. More than one-third also showed poor practice in giving out sexual education. However, more than 80% showed a good attitude. There was a significant association between knowledge and practice as well as education level and knowledge. Age and knowledge had significant association too. There was no significant association between age, employment status, education level, and financial status with attitude.

Conclusion: We believe that by increasing mothers’ knowledge on sexuality education, more girls in early adolescence will have first-hand exposure to sexual education from their own mothers in a private and more personalized atmosphere rather than in a classroom setting.

Key words: Adolescence; Environment; Parents; Sexual Abuse and Sexuality Education
