Teen dating violence epidemic tyra
As the age students begin to date lowers, so does the age at which violence begins.
Parents and teachers need to talk about how they think about and interact with their partners.
So, I was watching an episode of The Tyra Banks show, and the topic was "Teen Dating Violence Epidemic" and there were couples & females who shared there stories of being in an relationship and the men that abused them and took advantage of them.
Tyra spoke with teens in abusive relationships and gave them the support and resources to get help.
When they don’t receive this affirmation consistently, it can be devastating. Teens who do not have these adult connections instead draw information about how to date primarily from peers and the media.
Unfortunately, relationships within media often are portrayed as controlling and possessive, leaving teens to believe this is what love looks like. Additionally, 67 percent of young people in violent dating relationships have experienced violence within their homes.
