About the Book

This book is an attempt to respect and care about one's basic needs contributing to healthy body and mind. Learning about reproductive and sexual health is a lifelong process and a fundamental part of every person's socialization. But parents, teachers and other socializing agents are often unprepared or unwilling to provide information on reproductive health to adolescents, and to discuss sex-related matters with them. In this context, it is imperative that adolescents should have access to accurate, accessible and age-appropriate information and education about their reproductive health. It is widely accepted that the adolescents physical, cognitive, and emotional development occurs within social institutions, including family, friends, and school. Therefore, understanding the nature of development necessitates understanding the social contexts in which it occurs. For adolescents, families, peers, and schools constitute the most important cultural contexts in which development unfolds. Reproductive health education requires the teachers and parents' participation so that they could help adolescents build more relevant ones. Thus the present publication aims at looking for the representations of adolescents', teachers' and parents' in providing reproductive health education.
