Teen Dating Violence

There is nothing like your daughter’s first prom to get a father started down a long road of worrying about her as she starts dating. As much as we’ll like to believe that the young man who’s going to be taking her out has been properly raised and will treat our daughter with the respect she deserves and keep her safe, the simple fact is that we just can’t be sure.

Because of this it’s important not only to educate yourself but also to sit down with your daughter and teach her what to watch out for and when to leave.

Fortunately the CDC website has put together material that you can read, share and download.

Simply go to http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/intimatepartnerviolence/teen_dating_violence.html

Especially useful is the PDF that you can download entitled “Understanding Teen Dating Violence

Have the talk with your son or daughter now. It might make all the difference later.
