Abstract

Teenagers today are going behind their parents’ back to explore sexuality – an area perceived as taboo by a majority of Asian parents. While the society adopts a secular approach in its forum-like discussions over the Internet, television and newspapers, parents are continually surprised at the behaviour of their teenage children. Farheen Mukri explores the teenage sexuality situation in Singapore and identifies how social service agencies, schools and parents can collectively address the problem.
