ZNANSTVENE ČINJENICE O ZNAČAJU RODITELJSKOG UTJECAJA NA SPOLNO ZDRAVLJE ADOLESCENATA

Istraživanja pokazuju da roditelji imaju značajan pozitivni utjecaj na spolno zdravlje adolescenata i smanjenje spolnih rizika. Taj se utjecaj ostvaruje kroz roditeljsko-adolescentske odnose, roditeljske prakse i komunikaciju o spolnosti. Rezultati tih istraživanja potvrđuju da adolescenti s kojima roditelji razgovaraju o spolnosti, između ostalog, kasnije stupaju u spolne odnose i imaju manje partnera. Dokazano je da roditelji imaju  jedinstvenu ulogu u promicanju zdravog spolnog razvoja adolescenata. Oni o spolnosti mogu s njima blagovremeno i višekratno razgovarati, a uz to u pravilu imaju posebnu emocionalnu vezu s djecom te najpreciznije mogu prilagoditi razgovor njihovom kognititvnom, socijalnom, emocionalnom i fizičkom razvoju i potrebama.

Nažalost, malo je programa koji ciljano pomažu roditeljima podizati spolno zdravu mladež.  Umjesto da se roditelje u najboljem interesu djece i njihova zdravlja uključuje, njih se namjerno isključuje, radeći tako protivno interesima kako djece tako i roditelja.
