Signs and symptoms of dating violence
Whether you are a parent or a teenager in the dating world, there are things you can watch out for to identify dating violence and prevent it from happening again.
Many teens do not speak out when they are being abused or even after the abuse is over, so it is difficult to say just how prevalent this problem is among middle and high school students.
Often there are warning signs present early on in a relationship that can alert you to the fact that the relationship could become abusive.
The signs are usually there but often people mistake or confuse them believing they are just romantic or they are concerned about you.
Most importantly, if you keep the line of communication open with her, you'll be able to notice more signs.
