This is an issue that impacts everyone — not just teens — but their parents, teachers, friends and communities as well. Nationwide, youth age 12 to 19 experience the highest rates of rape and sexual assault.
Girls are particularly vulnerable to experiencing violence in their relationships and are more likely to suffer long-term behavioral and health consequences, including suicide attempts, eating disorders, and drug use. Adolescents in abusive relationships often carry these unhealthy patterns of violence into future relationships.
Indeed, children who are victimized or witness violence frequently bring this experience with them to the playground, the classroom, later into teen relationships and, ultimately, they can end up the victims and perpetrators of adult intimate partner violence. The following activities represent just a few of the exciting ways that everyone can — and hopefully will — engage in this work:.
The Family Violence Prevention and Services Program at the Administration for Children and Families is working to bring visibility to the work of advocates, the strength of victims, and the Federal initiatives addressing this pervasive issue by hosting social media events and webinars throughout the month of February. Everyone can make a difference by reaching out to young people in simple ways. If you know of a teen or parent that could benefit from speaking to a caring, well-trained peer advocate, please connect them with the National Dating Abuse Helpline, a project of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, at TTY:by texting "loveis" toor through live chat at loveisrespect.
