Teenage pregnancy: Stop having sex in the presence of your children – Parents told

Teenage mothers

The Chief Executive Officer of As I Grow (AIG), a nonprofit organisation in the Eastern Region, Isaac Debrah Bekoe, has advised parents to desist from having sexual intercourse in the presence of their children. 

He cited some Ghanaian parents especially those in rural areas, who sleep with their children in single rooms until the children grow up to rent a room on their own.

"These parents mostly have sexual intercourse in the presence of their children in a room at night presuming their children were asleep," he said.

He said many children catch their parents in the act, thus, creating their sexual curiosity which leads them to practice the same.

Mr Bekoe said this during the launch of the campaign against teenage pregnancy in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region
