Here’s a story about an increasing problem around the country- Teen Dating Violence.
“New research released by the American Psychological Association in 2013 paints a stark picture with nearly 1-in-3 young people aged 14-20 reporting they had been involved in an abusive relationship. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), victims of teen dating violence are more likely to do poorly in school and engage in binge drinking, suicide attempts, and violent behavior.
The CDC study also cites that physically abused teens are three times more likely than their non-abused peers to experience violence during their subsequent years. Ultimately, this creates a troubling cycle of abuse that can negatively impact a victim without intervention and can be carried on through generations.”
Signs of potential abuse are:
– Unexplained bruises or marks
– Falling self-esteem
– Increased isolation from friends and family
– Change in appearance that has been dictated by a significant other
– Technology being used as a way to monitor another’s activities
– Signs of intense efforts to help fix the partner, to accept blame and to take too much responsibility for relationship problems.
Teenage women need to learn how to defend themselves. One of the best ways to do that is to carry a powerful pepper spray like this one that is 87% stronger than competing brands contains a UV marking dye and can incapacitate an assailant for as much 45 minutes.
