Teen dating violence teen moms
Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.She needs an education so she can fight her way out of her depressing situation instead of fighting with her boyfriend.What a shame that has to come at her daughter’s expense. I’d be willing to speculate Amber’s not a first generation abuser. Though the vast majority of teenagers (probably even the majority of teen moms) are kind, polite, smart and motivated (and therefore not candidates for reality TV), there’s been a real upswing in rude, belligerent teen behavior in the last decade.
Several different words are used to describe teen dating violence.
The 2015 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey [2.77MB,180Pages, 508] found that nearly 12% of high school females reported physical violence and nearly 16% reported sexual violence from a dating partner in the 12 months* before they were surveyed. As teens develop emotionally, they are heavily influenced by experiences in their relationships.
For high school males, more than 7% reported physical violence and about 5% reported sexual violence from a dating partner. Healthy relationship behaviors can have a positive effect on a teen’s emotional development.
However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more serious forms of violence.
Teen dating violence [187KB, 2Pages, 508] is defined as the physical, sexual, psychological, or emotional aggression within a dating relationship, including stalking.
Amber however cuts loose with some really damaging stuff despite the cameras. The poor kid’s a mess, bless her heart and I hope the media attention drives support and anger management classes her way.
