As any parent knows, it can be difficult to communicate with your teen, especially when it comes to a sensitive topic like dating violence.
Share them with your teen and look at them together, or simply pass them on.
Each year, nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner.
At a rate far higher than other forms of youth violence, teen dating violence impacts 1 in 3 adolescents in the United States through physical, sexual, emotional and verbal abuse.
Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about dating violence, promote programs that support young people, and encourage communities to prevent this form of abuse with the goal of decreasing the prevalence of dating violence among young people.
