Girls friendships can prevent dating abuse
Communication is the most important thing in relationships.It forms the basis for respect and honesty and means that you listen to each other’s thoughts and opinions, and accept each other’s right to say no or to change your mind.
In contrast, in unhealthy relationships, one partner tries to exert control and power over the other physically, sexually, and/or emotionally.
Sometimes, however, these relationships can be unhealthy and can be harmful either to you or other people involved.
Unhealthy relationships can be risky because someone can get hurt emotionally or physically.
And, while your teen needs you more than ever to help them through this challenging time, they are also seeking independence and turning to peers.
While it may seem easier to let your teen shake you loose, hang on. Right now, your teen is forming relationships that set the stage for future relationships.
