Objectives:Current study was intended to examine empowerment of mothers concerning adolescent girls’ reproductive health in Iran.
Materials and Method:Content analysis was used in this qualitative research. Purposive sampling was performed until data saturation was reached. Our study sample included 26 mothers with 11-19 years old daughters living in Khorram Abad and 14 key informants. Semi-structured interviews were used for data collection and conventional content analysis was used for data analysis with MAXQDA10 software.
Results :In this study, 4 themes and 11 main categories each with some subcategories were extracted. The themes and main categories were as follows: “proper family-adolescent interaction (establishment of healthy parent-children relationship and emotional support)”, “educating the adolescent (age-appropriate education and teaching method)”, “parental responsibility (type of education, identification and acceptance of parental responsibilities and
supervision on the adolescent’s behavior)”, and promotion of parental knowledge about sexual and reproductive health (an authentic information source, appropriate time for receiving information, educational measures and procedures to enhance parental knowledge)”.
Conclusions:The results of current study can be effective and helpful for healthcare authorities to present intervention programs with the help of other organizations to enhance adolescent reproductive health.
