Dating Violence-Is your teen at risk?

Hey parents,

As a parent of a teen myself this is a topic I'm not thrilled to think about, but it's SO important to make sure your son/daughter is well-equipped with the skills to recognize dating violence and END IT. Remember-this isn't a one-sided issue; girls can be physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive to boys as well.

Talk with your kids--Watch the above video from the CDC-Break the Silence; this is a great video from the CDC on how to prepare your kids.

Have you talked to your teen about this? What did you say? How did you bring it up?

Happy parenting!
Faith :)
