[ARCHIVED] Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month: Warning Signs

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month


Being able to tell the difference between healthy, unhealthy and abusive relationships can be more difficult than you would think. No two relationships are the same, so what’s unhealthy in one relationship may be abusive in another. Although there are many signs to pay attention to in a relationship, look for these common warning signs of dating abuse:

  • Checking cell phones, emails or social networks without permission
  • Extreme jealousy or insecurity
  • Constant belittling or put-downs
  • Explosive temper
  • Isolation from family and friends
  • Making false accusations
  • Constant mood swings towards you
  • Physically inflicting pain or hurt in any way
  • Possessiveness
  • Telling someone what they can and cannot do
  • Repeatedly pressuring someone to have sex

If you are the parent of a teenager, take the initiative this February to speak with your teen about teen dating violence.  

To make a report contact Fulton County Job & Family Services at 419-337-0010 option 3 then 2, or local law enforcement.
