Learn about warning signs and solutions to help teens navigate relationships from Yesenia Maldonado, executive director of Chicago’s Between Friends organization. One in four teens have experienced abuse in a relationship by the time they reach high school.

From how to spot abuse to helping kids understand consent, Maldonado explains how parents can learn the tools to lead kids toward healthy relationships — romantic and within peer groups.
