Early warning signs of dating abuse
Some possible hiding spots include: Don’t overlook your teen’s cell phone or other digital devices. Do recent messages or social media posts hint at drug use or contradict what they’ve told you?
It’s not always easy to recognize the warning signs of someone’s toxic behavior.
Abusive people will often rely on insulting you, claiming that they are “only joking.” They will begin to tease you relentlessly about your looks, your family, and your friends.
When you protest, they may call you hypersensitive.
If these ring true, something is wrong and it’s time to take action.
The limits you set with your child do not stop at their bedroom door.
