Is Your Teen Dating Without Danger? Did you know that 2 out of 3 teens will experience dating abuse? What is LOVE offers a FREE Parent Workshop helping parents to identify red flags of abusive dating, practice conversation starters, and connect to school and community resources.
Unfortunately, 75% of parents don’t talk with their teens about relationships. While these numbers are startling, talking to your teen is the best way to prevent them from experiencing dating abuse.
Christy Haynes, What is LOVE founder and dating abuse prevention expert explains, “Although your teen may not tell you this, they actually want to have these conversations. By starting a conversation, you have the power to set them up to do better in school, to be safer, to be happier, and better prepared for college or a career.”
Thursday, April 23rd join us for a FREE Parent and Teen Workshop at the Faulkner Gallery located in the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 East Anapamu Street, from 6PM-7:30PM. Delish Food, Spanish Translation and Childcare provided. Community service offered too!
DID YOU KNOW? Teens who are harmed by dating abuse are more likely to do poorly in school, binge drink, attempt suicide, engage in physical fighting, and have a greater likelihood of teen pregnancy.
What is LOVE is committed to giving parents and teens the tools they need to interrupt this cycle and build healthy relationship skills. Research confirms the number one indicator for better grades, better attendance, and happier teens is building healthy relationship skills.
