Effects of teen dating
Most teenagers don’t act sensibly as they are immature and don’t have knowledge of right and wrong.
This sometimes leads to wrong activities and decisions.
If everything is in limits, I don’t think there should be any discouragement.
The world is changing, so we all have to change our thoughts with the changing scenario.
They should keep an eye on their children’s activities.
The Tennessee Department of Health is taking part in Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month to help prevent dating violence among Tennessee teens.
“Teen dating violence is a widespread issue across Tennessee and it comes with serious longterm and short-term health effects,” said TDH Assistant Commissioner for Family Health and Wellness Morgan Mc Donald, MD.
“We are determined to end teen dating violence and want to stress the importance of talking with your pre-teen or teenager about why healthy relationships are important.” Teen dating violence occurs when one or both partners, in an attempt to control the other, use abusive acts to make that person do what he or she wants.
This may involve physical violence, but teen relationships can be abusive without any physical abuse.
Teen dating violence can also be verbal, emotional, sexual or a combination of these.
