Dear Friends,

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month– a perfect opportunity to bring up healthy relationships and dating violence with the young people in our lives. For many (most?) of us this is an intimidating idea, so here is an easy place to start: ask them what they know already. The list may be long; more likely it will be short with some inaccuracies.
