February Is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

February is a time best known for Valentine’s Day and romance. In 2010, the month of February was also officially designated by Congress as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. As a result, discussions about the rising epidemic of teen dating violence are not only encouraged, but embraced. These discussions focus on the physical, sexual, and psychological abuses that are present in relationships between teenagers across the country. If you are the parent of a teenager, take the initiative this February to speak with your teen about teen dating violence. If you suspect that your teen is committing teen dating violence, make sure you discuss the criminal consequences of such actions with them.
