group of teenagers

It has always been difficult being a teenager, but it seems like teens of today face more challenges than ever before.

40% of teenage girls (age 14-17) know someone their age that has been physically assaulted by their boyfriend/girlfriend.

Yet, less than 25% of teens say they have discussed dating violence with their parents.

In addition, over 43% of teenagers reported cyberbullying in the last year.

Unhealthy relationships are everywhere: in the hallways at school, on TV, and online. When you find yourself right in the middle of an unhealthy situation, it can be difficult to talk to parents. You may feel like they do not understand. You may be afraid of the consequences if you tell someone.

It is okay. These are natural fears that many people have.

But…you are not alone! There is help available.
