This February, feel the love by showing kindness, safeguarding your family against fire, teaching your teens about positive relationships and giving your belly a snack it will love! All this, and more, in our newest issue of Wellness. The first article, in its entirety below, discusses warning signs that your teen may be involved in an abusive relationship.
February is a time of love, but for some teens, love can hurt. Most teens will remain quiet if they are in an abusive relationship, which can cause physical, mental, and emotional damage. They might later become abusive to others and are far more likely to have abusive relationships into adulthood.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Do you know the signs of violence in a teen dating relationship?
Some other warning signs from Break the Cycle:
If you suspect your son or daughter’s relationship is not healthy, you’ll need to talk to him or her about it, which is not easy. You should express your concern for your child’s safety, but ultimately your teen must choose to leave the relationship. When the relationship ends, he or she may find it useful to talk to a therapist or counselor. Depending on the situation, you may want to report the abuse to the police, file a restraining order, or file a lawsuit. Talk to us, too, if you have questions.
