Lets end dating violence - asiandating review
As advocates, we know firsthand from our work in schools that teens are confused about what abuse is and how they can stop it. You can help them understand: Dating abuse is a pattern of behaviors that someone uses to control an intimate partner-where they go, what they do, who they see, or what they wear.
There are many people who can help, including Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance advocates who are available 24-hours a day at (800)863-9909.

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month….
Amanda Cost From Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance is here with some tips on how to talk with teens about this important topic.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, so it’s a good time to sit down and think about what teen dating violence is, and who it affects (hint: the numbers are much bigger than you think).
It’s also a good time to talk to your kids or a young person in your life about what healthy and unhealthy relationships can look like.
According to Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance, one in three teens in the U. has been a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.
Only one third of those who experience physical violence in their dating relationship tell someone about the abuse.
Starting a conversation not only gives your teen the ability to recognize abuse when they see it in their own relationships or those of their friends, it lets them know they can feel safe telling you if something happens.
Unfortunately, young members of our community are being exposed to dating violence and abuse.
