According to BreakTheCycle.org, nearly 1 in 3 high school students will encounter physical or sexual violence while dating.
Parents can stop abuse by having conversations with their teens before they start dating and by knowing what to watch for in their high school-aged kids.
As February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness month, Chicago Parent will be talking to a teen health expert for an upcoming episode of our podcast, “Masters in Parenting.” Do you have a question that you’d like to hear the expert answer?
