TEEN DATING VIOLENCE INFORMATION

SEE BELOW...

 

Click here for a great resource on how to engage youth about sexual violence!

Have a hard time knowing how or what to say to your youth about healthy relationships or sexuality?

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, "Many adults lack accurate information about what to expect as adolescents develop sexually. This can make it difficult to distinguish healthy from unhealthy behaviors. When adults understand the difference between the two, they are better able to support healthy attitudes and behaviors and create positive opportunities to learn from challenges. They also are equipped to intervene when there are concerns related to unhealthy behavior or sexual violence."--nsvrc.org


Here is a great resource to help parents better understand what their youth are going through in adolescence, and how you can begin building an important conversation with your teen: "An Overview Of Adolescent Sexual Development."
