February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. PAYNE & Glory, Inc. wants you to know that there’s a lot you can do as a parent to prevent teen dating violence and abuse.
More than 1 in 10 teens who have been on a date have also been physically abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend in the last year. One of the most important things you can do is keep the lines of communication open with your kids.
Take steps to make a difference:
Be a role model — treat your kids and others with respect.
Start talking to your kids about healthy relationships early — before they start dating.
Get involved with efforts to prevent dating violence at your teen’s school.
Call the National Dating Abuse Helpline at 1-866-331-9474
or text “loveis” to 22522, if you are worried about your teen.
You can help keep your loved ones safe and healthy.
