You may think that behaviors like calling you names or insisting on seeing you all the time are a "normal" part of relationships.
But they can lead to more serious kinds of abuse, like hitting, stalking, or preventing you from using birth control.
Abuse is a taught behavior and repeats itself within families.
The statistics are alarming; 1 in 4 teens will be involved in a violent dating relationship. In a healthy relationship, a partner might feel important, special, attractive, respected and happy.
Dating violence is always wrong, and you can get help.
