TEEN DATING VIOLENCE

Teen dating violence is more common than we think. Research shows that girls between the ages of 16-24 have experienced a higher rate of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by their boyfriend. Girls exposed to abuse at home are at an even higher risk of entering into an abusive relationship. The lack of education on abuse may lead a teen to believe this is a normal and perhaps acceptable behavior

 

EFFECTS OF ABUSE

DESTRUCTIVE  BEHAVIOR

higher risk for  substance abuse,  eating disorders,  risky sexual  behavior and  further domestic  violence

TEEN  PREGNANCY

six times more likely  to become  pregnant and twice  as likely to get a  STD

SUICIDE


50% attempt  suicide, compared  to 12.5% of non-  abused girls and  5.4% of non-abused  boys
