SIKAP ORANGTUA DALAM ANTISIPASI KEKERASAN SEKSUAL PADA ANAK USIA 5-6 TAHUN
The high number of sexual violence against children requires an anticipatory effort, one of which is from parents. The attitude of parents in anticipation of sexual violence in children aged 5-6 years is required. This is also supported by parental communication with children about sexuality. This research was conducted to determine the relationship between communication about sexuality with
parents' attitudes towards anticipating sexual violence in children aged 5-6 years. The study design used correlative analysis with cross sectional approach. The research respondents were 40 parents of children aged 5-6 years in KB / TK Muslimat NU 16 in Klojen Subdistrict Malang City with a sampling technique using total sampling that met the exclusion and inclusion criteria. The study was analyzed using the Spearman rank test. Data collection instruments used a parental communication questionnaire about sexuality and a parental questionnaire in anticipation of sexual violence on children, which had been tested for validity and reliability. Data analysis was performed univariately and bivariately (spearman rank test) with an alpha value 0.05. The results showed that parental attitudes in anticipation of sexual violence in children aged 5-6 years were related to parental communication about sexuality (p value <0.001). Parents play an important role in preventing sexual violence by providing sexual education to children from an early age and being positive towards the anticipation of sexual violence in early childhood.
