February has been recognized as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. The 28 days within it shine light on what love is, what it shouldn’t be and ways to recognize one from the other. It is specifically marked as an opportunity to direct teens and young adults to the right path of forming healthy friendships and relationships with those around them. It is also designed to provide resources of healing for those who have experienced violence in these relationships.
Follow along on the app this week on ways to discuss relationships with the teen in your life and how to identify potential red flags. Also check back Friday as we share a calendar on how to love yourself, too.
