Teen Dating Violence Awareness

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Every year an alarming number of high school students, - approximately 1.5 million – experience physical abuse by a dating partner. Only 1 in 4 parents have ever talked to their children about domestic violence. We encourage everyone to break the cycle and start a conversation with their children. 

For a guide on how to start the “NO MORE” campaign there is a toolkit entitled “How to Start a Conversation: Talking About Dating and Healthy Relationships Step by Step”

Too Cold to Walk Outside?
