2008 - Parents and Sex Education: Parents’ Attitudes to Sexual Health Education in WA Schools


In 2008 consultations were held with the parents of primary and secondary aged school children in city and country WA. Parents were asked about the ways they currently approach educating their children about sex, reproduction, sexuality and relationships, and the kind of support needed to assist them to more effectively communicate with their children about these topics. Parents were also asked about school sexual health education programs, the role of schools and teachers in the provision of these programs, and parent engagement with the school regarding this particular type of health education program.
