Healthy vs unhealthy dating relationships

02-Aug-2016 07:22

Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name calling, are a "normal" part of a relationship.

However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more serious forms of violence.

Several different words are used to describe teen dating violence. Dating violence is widespread with serious long-term and short-term effects. Unhealthy, abusive, or violent relationships can have severe consequences and short- and long-term negative effects on a developing teen.

The best things we can do as responsible individuals are educate ourselves on the subject of domestic violence.

When one person in a relationship repeatedly scares, hurts or puts down the other person, it is abuse.

You may think that your husband is allowed to make you have sex. If you feel like you can't talk to your partner, try talking to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor.

You may think that cruel or threatening words are not abuse. And sometimes emotional abuse is a sign that a person will become physically violent. If you think you might be in an unhealthy relationship, you should be able to talk to your partner about your concerns.
