Description:
This research summary gives key findings from HSE Crisis Pregnancy Programme (CPP) research about teenage sexuality. Some of the research studies involved speaking to teenagers about their sexual education, behaviour and beliefs; others were based on young adults reflecting on their past experiences. The research findings in this leaflet can help parents and those who work with young people understand more about how young people in Ireland feel about relationships and sexuality, including what it is like to be a teenager growing up in Ireland today, how young people learn about relationships and sex and what influences young people’s sexual behaviour and learning. The leaflet also describes how parents approach relationships and sexuality education with their children. Research shows that parents’ influence is key to a child’s emotional and sexual development; however, even when parents feel they have discussed sex and relationships, young people don’t always feel they have the information they need. The CPP hopes that having research findings available in an easy-to-read format will help parents to support their children to develop a healthy and responsible attitude to relationships and sex. We hope the research findings will provoke thought, discussion and interest among parents and those who work with young people. Readers may use the research as a basis for discussion with young people, or they may want to get practical information or advice about some of the issues raised in the research.
