Purpose: This study aimed at representing lived experience of parents in their teaching sex morality to their children.
Method: As a qualitative research, a hermeneutic phenomenology, as strategy and method was applied. Participants included 20 parents of middle class families with strong educational background in Sanandaj. In order to collect data, semi-structured and Multistep interviews were used; and then analyzed via Ajjawi and Higgs method.
Findings: The findings show that the experience of parents can be reconstructed in three dimensions: cognitive, emotional, and practical; with tree inherent factors: ignorance, fear, and contingency. In other words, they had no knowledge of sex education and how to teach sexual ethics. They do not pay attention to sex education unless their children face some sexual problems; and yet, a widespread fear of their children’s sexual behaviors can be seen among them. The proposed solution for parents is to take advantage of the soft conjunctive- disjunctive approach in sex education.
