The parents as the prime sexual educator do not offer sufficient sexual education to their children as a stage of the youth development.
Parents or guardians are the first and primary sexual health educators of children. What parents say and do can have a powerful influence on the development of healthy sexuality in children.
Major part of youth with disabilities face a lack of the opportunity to learn about sex and protective behaviours in an appropriate manner. This leads to lack of preparation and knowledge for having human-to-human relationships, including sex and might find it difficult to express their sexuality in a satisfying way.
