Dating Abuse - Is Your Child 1 Out of 3 Abused?

Houston, Texas (PressExposure) April 23, 2008 -- [] is pleased to announce tools for parents of teens to use in the battle of dating violence. Because one out of three females IS abused at the hands of her date, parents need to empower their teens against dating abuse and violence.

Most people associate abuse with physical abuse and intimate abuse. Those two are certainly there, but there is also emotional abuse, verbal abuse, psychological abuse, destruction of personal property, threats, anger, and intimidation, jealously, isolations, possessiveness, restriction of freedoms, and abuse of the so- called "male privileges" as well as some other things as well.

What is a parent to do? There are at least a couple of situations here - parents of the abused and parents of the abuser.

Date A Hero, Not A Zero is a "two thumbs up" (rated by parents, teens, counselors, and ministers) home study course. There is the portion with several hundred questions for the teens to ask each other in order to get to know each other. There is a S.A.L.T. workshop that contains 8 sessions with worksheets AND complete audio that goes through Red Flag Questions, the different types of abuse, what real love is and what it is not. It literally takes a parent and the teen by the hand and opens the doors of communications.

Included is a Special Report: "Dating Violence-Tips On How To Talk With Your Teen". This report covers such things as How can you use this information, Things to always remember, A typical dating violence scenario, What is Relationship/Dating Violence, Is it a significant problem, How young can it start, Where can it occur, Common kinds of abuse, Early warning signs that a partner might abuse, Jealously, Cell phones, Possessiveness, Controlling Behavior, Anger, Can I fix it, Low self-esteem, Friends of the couple, Early warning signs for parents to watch for, Underlying dynamics in an abusive relationship, What can a parent do, and Parent of the abuser.

Overall, very powerful stuff. If you have a teen or know someone who has a teen, or you are over youth in some capacity, this is a "must have" package. Youth leaders also use it in youth groups. Check it out today.
