Dating Violence

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 boyfriends. 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 normal and perhaps acceptable behavior
