Abstract

It is essential to provide sexual health education from an early age by understanding children to minimize sexual violence in children. The golden age (0-6 years) is a golden period in children's brain development. Education given at this time is a provision for the future, but if there is sexual violence, it will affect the child's psyche and soul. The mother, who is the child's first school, is the most appropriate provision of sexual health education. Also found that more than half of families with a positive attitude (57%), exposure to sexual and reproductive health information (66%) and positive role from family (53%). However, only 26% of the teacher's role in sex education and reproductive health. No significant relationship between knowledge and family behavior in providing sexuality and reproductive health education, but there was a significant relationship in attitudes (p = 0.043), level of education (p = 0.060), exposure to media information (p = 0.005), family role (p = 0.004), and the role of the child's teacher (p = 0.040). The most related variables are family role OR = 0.245 with a confidence level of 90%. It is expected that the family can establish excellent and open communication with the child to feel comfortable and more open to the family. Family more active in seeking information about the approach, method, or providing reproductive health education to children aged 3-6 years were fun and easily understood by children.
