Abstract: This paper is an empirical work aimed as determining the attitudinal disposition of parents towards the introduction of sex education into the primary school curriculum. An effort of this nature becomes imperative so as to ascertain the acceptance parents will determine the success on otherwise of the implementation process of this programme. Research questions and hypotheses were drawn based on some factors that were perceived to affect parental disposition on sex education while a single instrument was developed validated and used for the purpose of data collection. This was administered on one hundred and fifty (I50) parents. The data collected was analyzed using mean, standard deviation and t-test statistical methods. The findings showed that, many parents within the study sample had misconceptions about the programme and did not perceive it as relevant for societal progress. Certain religious considerations appeared to have responsible for this situation. Our traditional belief system seemed not to have posed any impediments to the acceptance of this programme. However, generally the need for awareness and enlightenment campaigns was agitated for to improve on the acceptance status of parents towards the implementation of the programme and guarantee its success.
