February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month (TDVAM), and it has me thinking a lot about how hard it is to start a conversation about dating violence and healthy relationships with the teens in my own life. Most of us never had these conversations as teenagers ourselves. We often feel at a loss at how to start the conversation, and anxiety about how to keep the conversation going.
So I’ve set a challenge for myself, and I hope you will join me: this month, I’m going to engage a teen in my life in a conversation about dating violence and healthy relationships. If you want to do the same, this link has everything you need to get started. Be sure to let them know that help is available if they are in an unhealthy relationship.
These conversations are hard but critical. Together, we can help more young people get the support they need to navigate early relationships in healthy ways.
