When we think about victims of teen dating violence, we tend to think of older teens, but did you know that 72% of 13 – 14 year olds are dating?* It’s important to have conversations with teens of ALL ages about healthy relationships, because even our young teens can be impacted by dating violence. Take for example the death of THIS 13 year-old girl in Georgia who was killed by her 16 year-old boyfriend at the end of last year. What are some strategies you use when talking to a young teen about dating violence?
