  • The warning signs of abuse;
  • Characteristics of healthy relationships; and
  • How exposure to domestic violence affects children.

    I think the community is being more educated yet it is not stopping domestic violence because its starting during the dating phase where girls are more scared to say anything due to what their parents will do. More education on Teen Dating Violence or abuse needs to be out there more!

      Tina,

      Thank you for sharing with our blog community. You are definitely right! A preventative approach has been proven to be more effective and that is why the loveisrespect, National Dating Abuse Hotline was created. February is National Teen Dating Abuse Awareness Month, keep checking out loveisrespect for more information on the ways to get involved in your area!
