Abstract


Kanak-kanak sering menjadi mangsa penderaan termasuklah melibatkan pedofilia. Justeru, pengetahuan ibu bapa adalah penting terutama dalam penyalahgunaan kanak-kanak untuk tujuan seksual seperti pedofilia. Kajian ini dijalankan bagi meneroka pengetahuan ibu bapa berkenaan pedofilia. Reka bentuk yang digunakan dalam kajian ini adalah berbentuk kualitatif dengan menggunakan teknik temu bual separa struktur. Seramai tujuh orang informan yang terdiri daripada ibu bapa yang tinggal di kawasan Pekan Dengkil telah ditemu bual. Data bagi kajian ini dianalisis secara analisis tematik bagi meneroka pengetahuan ibu bapa berkenaan pedofilia terhadap kanak-kanak. Hasil kajian menunjukkan bahawa pengetahuan ibu bapa masih lagi kurang berdasarkan kepada pengetahuan mereka mengenai istilah, kewujudan kes dan umur sasaran mangsa pedofilia. Hasil kajian juga menyatakan bahawa umur bagi mangsa pedofilia ini diperoleh berdasarkan pendapat dan pengalaman informan dalam mengikuti perkembangan kes pedofilia yang pernah dilaporkan di kaca televisyen, akhbar mahupun internet. Majoriti daripada informan berpendapat bahawa kanak-kanak di peringkat sekolah rendah sememangnya merupakan individu yang berpotensi tinggi menjadi mangsa berbanding individu dewasa disebabkan faktor kenaifan serta kurangnya pengetahuan. Sehubungan itu, kepekaan dari segi pengetahuan ibu bapa amat penting bagi menjamin keselamatan kanak-kanak.
