A Parent’s Guide to Teen Dating Violence: Questions to Start the Conversation

This handbook can help parents talk with their teenage sons and daughters about the violence that can occur within a relationship and the confusion and pain it causes. The questions in this handbook provide a framework for one, two or ten conversations and can offer important information and insights into dating abuse. These talks can spark a discussion about preventing abuse and give you a chance to share your beliefs about healthy, non-violent relationships with your child. More importantly, these questions can lead to a conversation about what is happening in your teens relationships and how you can help. No one is better positioned to make a difference in the lives of young people than parents. Your concerns about your child staying clear of abuse, being respectful of others and finding healthy relationships need to be discussed.
