ORCASITA PINEDA, LINDA TERESA et al. Dialog and Knowledge about Sexuality of Parents of Adolescent School Children. Rev. colomb. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.1, pp.41-53. ISSN 0121-5469.

The study aimed to explore the dialog and knowledge of sexuality expressed by fathers or mothers of adolescents. A qualitative methodology with narrative design was used, with focus groups used for data collection. The results demonstrate that the parents or mothers learn about sexuality from their own experiences, so this aspect is present in communication with their children. The most discussed topic was pregnancy, excluding sexually transmitted infections (sti), pornography and sexual diversity. The study concludes that dialogs with these participants about sexuality contain multiples discourses; intervention strategies oriented to promoting training spaces and communication skills regarding sexuality are required.

Keywords : communication; sexuality; adolescence; family.
