Role Play, Mother Skills, Sexual Violence, Pre-School


Background: Sexual violence against children is a form of sexual deviation that is very life-threatening, especially because it has a destructive and psychological impact. Meanwhile, in Probolinggo Regency, there are 35 cases of sexual violence against children. The study aims to enhance the effectiveness of educational media in enhancing mothers' abilities to prevent sexual violence in preschool children. The study employs a role-playing game as its educational medium.

Methods:  The main goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of teaching mothers skills in preventing sexual assault with preschoolers through role-playing. This study has a quasi-experimental design. Seventy-six respondents were included in the purposive sampling, of whom 38 were assigned to the intervention group and 38 to the control group. Data were gathered using a questionnaire about the characteristics of the respondents and an observation sheet on "Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Practices." The Wilcoxon test was employed for data analysis

Results: The results showed the effectiveness of education with the role-play method on maternal skills to prevent sexual violence against children with a P-value of 0.005.

Conclusion: Educational media with the role-play method can be applied to improve maternal skills and prevent sexual violence in preschool-age children. Families, nursing professions, educational institutions, and subsequent research are expected to participate in efforts to prevent sexual violence in children
