Teen Dating Guidelines

  • No matter what you say or do, you DESERVE better
  • Every girl has the right to a healthy relationship.
  • Many teens, just like you, have experienced, or know someone
  • who has been in an abusive relationship. You are not alone.
  • Remember that it is not your fault. You have done nothing wrong even if he or she says you caused the abuse.
  • Violence in a relationship does not get better as the relationship continues. It becomes worse if you don't do something to stop it.
  • If your partner is drunk or high on drugs, it is still not a reason or excuse to abuse you.
  • Anger is also no excuse or reason to abuse you.
  • Do not put up with abuse.
