Did you know that February is recognized Nationally as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month? According to the CDC, As many as 1 in 3 adolescent girls in the U.S have been a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. Male teens are also affected by dating violence. Teen dating violence can be physical, emotional, verbal and even sexual. Violence can occur in person, on social media, by phone and text. Teen dating violence is never ok! If you need local resources for your teen, give us a call today or check out https/www.breakthecycle.org/teenDVmonth to learn more about teen dating violence.
