ABSTRACT

This study assessed Risky Sexual Behaviour and its relationship to Self-esteem and Parent-child communication among Late Adolescents in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. It also ascertained the demographic determinants of Self-esteem, Parent-child communication and Risky Sexual Behaviour of the students. These were with a view to providing information on the role of Self-esteem and Parent-child communication on Risky Sexual Behaviour of the students in the study area.

The study employed a descriptive cross sectional design. Sample size was 416, which was determined using Kirsh formula for estimating single proportion. A multi-stage sampling technique was used in selecting respondents. Data were collected using, a structured and self-administered questionnaire which had four sections (A-D). Section A comprises the social demographic variables, which include respondents; age, gender, socio-economic level etc. Section B was the Rosenberg’s self-esteem scale (RSES) to assess self-esteem; Section C was Parent –Teen Sexual Risk Communication Scale (PTSRC-III) to assess Parent –child communication about sexuality. Section D contained the Safe Sex Behavior Questionnaire (SSBQ) which assessed risky sexual behaviour. Univariate (Frequency and percentages) and bi-variate (t-test and Chi-square) were used to test the difference. Pearson Product Moment was also used to test the relationship between variables.

The study established that 170(56%) of the respondents belong to the female gender and 133(43.9%) to the male gender. The age of respondents ranged between 15-22 years with the median age of 18.5. in terms of family type 231(76.2%) of the respondents were from monogamous family, 4 (13.2%) were from Polygamous family while 32(10.6%) were brought up by single parents. In terms of socio economic level, 64(21.1%) of the respondents were from above average family, 214(70.6%) were from average family wile 25(8.3%) of the respondents were from below average family. Findings showed that the prevalence of Risky Sexual Behaviour was 32.7 %, male: female ratio was 2:1. The study revealed that Risky Sexual Behaviour correlates significantly with self-esteem (r= .155, p < .05). However, no significant relationship was observed between Parent-child communication and Risky Sexual Behaviour (r= .104, p>.05). Socio-demographic variable that was significantly associated with Risky Sexual Behaviour include gender of respondents (χ²=20.9, p < .001) and family type (χ²=19.5, p < .001). 

The study concluded that self-esteem, gender and family type have influence on Risky Sexual Behaviours among late adolescents. Thus; two key components; self and family, must be put into consideration when designing any intervention program to combat Risky Sexual Behaviour among late adolescents.
