Dating violence can have a negative effect on health throughout life.
Victims of teen dating violence are more likely to experience symptoms of depression and anxiety.
is a pattern of actual or threatened acts of physical, sexual, financial, verbal/emotional abuse, sexual or reproductive coercion, social sabotage, and/or sexual harassment perpetrated by an adolescent against a current or former partner or a person with whom the teen has some kind of intimate relationship.
While it’s necessary to educate young people about the warning signs and impact of abusive relationships, it’s at least equally productive to talk with them about relationship rights, respect and the dynamics of healthy relationships.
Educated girls and boys about what to do if they are being abused and the best ways to prevent it from happening at all are through fun and energetic campaigns that give them real resources.
Here’s a great healthy relationship definition from the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (2009): A significant majority of students report experience of sexual harassment.
Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.
Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a "normal" part of a relationship.
Domestic abuse is not only reserved for the adults of our world.
Dating violence in teens is becoming a larger and larger problem as the time goes on.
