Moms and dads for education to stop teen dating abuse

Even more troubling, the majority of teens who are in abusive relationships report they have not talked to their parents.

Of the fewer than 1/3 who do confide in their parents, 78% of these teens report staying in these abusive relationships despite their parents’ advice. and the Family Violence Prevention Fund commissioned the survey conducted by Teenage Research Unlimited (TRU) to explore how the economy has impacted dating relationships among young adolescents and to determine the level and impact of parental engagement in the issue of teen dating violence and abuse.

When I got the invitation to Liz Claiborne’s “Its Time To Talk Day” and realized I might not be able to go, I immediately forwarded it to my college friend, writer and blogger Nicole Caccavo Kear at A Mom Amok.

She has a very informative write up over on her blog and gave me permission to highlight a few points here on Mamanista and later on Bloganthropy.

Her father, Robert Silverstein, wrote to our school asking to partake in the awareness month in honor of his daughter.

doc ID=729&cat ID=8A new survey reports that teens nationwide are experiencing significant levels of dating abuse, and the economy appears to be making it worse.

The event aimed to bring teen relationship abuse to the forefront, with several domestic violence experts, as well as parents and teens who had experienced it firsthand.

Yet reality is very different from cartoons for some tweens and teens. On December 3, 2009, Liz Claiborne held their annual event, “Time to Talk”*.

The weekend that Allison was murdered, I was preparing for our school's Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month campaign.

The morning announcements about statistics and resources were set and a line-up of both male and female students were at the helm to recite them.
