Teen Dating Violence

1 in 5 teens will be in an abusive relationship. Teens account for

51% of all reported sexual abuse. 

Teens who experience sexual abuse are more likely to experience further sexual abuse, and teen victims in grades 9 through 12 are also more likely to suffer from eating disorders, engage in suicidal behavior, become pregnant and engage in risky sexual behaviors. Though teens are at an increased risk for experiencing physical and sexual violence, 81% of parents surveyed by the Family Violence Prevention Fund and Advocates for Youth admit that they do not believe teen dating violence is an issue, or they do not know if it is. Is your relationship abusive? Would you help a friend in a bad situation? Are you an abusive partner?
