Single parent attitudes toward sex education.



This study investigated single parent attitudes toward the sex education of their children. A questionnaire was devised to gather data about who should teach sex education to the children in a 1 parent home and how it should be done. An open ended question sought to determine specific problems which might be experienced. A majority of the single respondents agreed that sex education is a responsibility of the parent and school, but the family should remain the primary source of attitudes toward sex. Respondents expressed concern over their own sexuality, fears about the freer moods toward sex, and confidence that single parents have no more problems than 2 parent families in teaching about sexuality. Respondents were randomly selected from attendees at an international convention of the organization "Parents Without Partners."
