Teen dating violence is all too common, and ends up leading to vicious and unhealthy cycles for years to come.
Our responsibility - as parents, teachers, mentors, and community leaders - is to guide our young people towards respectful relationships free from harassment and abuse; teach them that it’s ok to walk away from a bad situation; and encourage them to speak out when they see a friend in trouble.
Domestic violence is not just a problem for adults; it’s increasingly prevalent among teens.
One in three teens has experienced some kind of abuse, including verbal and emotional abuse; one in four has been pressured into oral sex or intercourse.
Teen dating violence can be prevented, especially when there is a focus on reducing risk factors as well as fostering protective factors, and when teens are empowered through family, friends, and others (including role models such as teachers, coaches, mentors, and youth group leaders) to lead healthy lives and establish healthy relationships.
