Abstract:   (1045 Views)
Background: Because of the importance of adolescence, the priority of reproductive health in the world is adolescent reproductive health. What distinguishes this age from other phases of life is the emergence of fertility. Sexual ability, especially among this age group, is a matter of great significance. In fact, today's adolescents, like their peers at all times, are sexually active, with the difference that they are exposed to more sexual stimuli comparing to the past. Moreover, through promoting views about pro-individuality, freedom, opposite-sex friendship, and even establishing advanced relationships are encouraged more than ever. Hence, adolescents face unique reproductive health challenges. The purpose of this study was to discover the views of mothers of adolescent girls about sexual education for adolescent girls.
Methods: In this qualitative study, data were collected through 4 focus group discussions with 26 mothers who had at least one adolescent girl between the ages of 14 -19, not married, living with parents, and attending public schools of Mashhad in 2016. The sampling method, given that the interviews were conducted at the adolescent girls' school, was designed to purposely select schools in a way that encompassed all three high, low, and medium economic and social situations of city dwellers. The number of participants in the focus group sessions ranged from 6 to 8 and the duration of each session was between 60 to 90 minutes. All focus groups were recorded using two digital recorders and field notes with the consent of the interviewees. Having been transcribed, the data were coded and categorized using the conventional content analysis method with the Grunheim and Lundman approach and using MAXQDA10 software.
Results: Data were collected in four main categories: Self-study over time- Sexual education is a moral deviation factor- The need to increase mothers' sexual literacy- and School and family participation
 Conclusions: Most participants` mothers emphasized the need for adolescent girls' sexual education and believed that this should be done with the participation of schools and families. However, they disagreed with the exact time of initiation into teaching. Some of the mothers believed that the best time for initiation to teaching is the time of marriage, and others, considering the prevailing conditions in the community, especially easy access to Internet, surmise that the sexual education should begin during adolescence and before marriage, however, they though that pre-marriage sexual education should initiate according to certain criteria, in this regard, they emphasized the school's involvement which, in turn, needs the government appropriate policies.
