CHALLENGES PARENTS OR ELDERS FACE WHEN PASSING ON SEX EDUCATION
  • Parents are reluctant to educate their young ones about sex and sexuality. They spend much of their time at workplaces in that they are under the control of house girls.




  • The high levels of poverty. Because many people are too poor and always search for avenue of survival, it becomes hard to convince people including young ones to avoid acting adultery.
  • Influence of mass media: these put the mind of the young ones into films of doing some of the practices what they see or read about hence becoming an obstacle.
  • Great permissiveness in the society today is uncontrolled because of the weak society laws in society where people want to do what they want whenever they want at anytime without fearing the outcomes. For example some people who are in disgrace children by kissing one another in public.
  • Impact of shyness which comes from both teachers and parents who are supported to extend the message of the youth tend to fear to talk about sexual issues towards the young ones.
  • Ignorance is a big obstacle in extending sex education. Many parents in actual sense who are supposed to teach children sex education are ignorant about what they are supposed to teach.




  • The influence of peer groups especially in schools when the youth talk more about sexual issues. They educate are another about making love affairs. It becomes hard for teachers to change his/her mind.
  • High curiosity (great) love to know about sex has also made it difficult for teachers of sex education to convince the young ones to avoid sexual related issues until the time of marriage.
  • Generation gap, the youth today tend to give little attention to advice of the elders saying that they move with change of global world.
  • Low levels towards religion which people up to today have also proved in the society that is the basic obstacle. Very few people have fear towards almighty God so they don’t give a chance towards teachers of sex education.
  • High influence of pornographic materials where the youth watch blue movies have made the work of extending sex education to the young ones.




  • The law attitudes of the traditional customs and beliefs In African traditional society. It was easy for the elders to teach the young about sex education because people respected so much their traditions prohibiting involving in sexual actions before marriage. In some societies it was even punishable by death. However today it is a shame to mention that one is a virgin at the age of 18 and above.
