October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Although it might not be readily apparent, dating violence amongst young people is a serious problem. According to loveisrespect.org, nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence. One in 10 high school students has been purposefully hit, slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. One quarter of high school girls have been victims of physical or sexual abuse. Approximately 70% of college students say they have been sexually coerced. Be sure to talk with your teens about what healthy relationships are and how to get out of relationships that might not be healthy. Look for resources to help you in this discussion, such as loveisrespect.org, for example. Help your teen understand that dating violence is not an automatic in relationships, rather it should be the exception.
