What is a healthy relationship? What is teen dating safety? Why do I need to know?
.1 out of every 3 teens has been a victim of an abusive dating relationship.
.2 out of 3 parents have never spoken with their child about teen dating abuse.
The Shalom Bayit program of Jewish Family & Career Services in partnership with JumpSpark and PJ Our Way will present Love Shouldn’t Hurt, an educational seminar designed to educate parents about teen dating safety and healthy dating relationships. A companion program to the Love Shouldn’t Hurt healthy relationship program for teens, this parent program will give parents:
•Awareness and increased knowledge about dating abuse.
•Ability to recognize warning signs of unhealthy/abusive relationships.
•Skills to talk with their teens about healthy relationships and dating safety.
Today’s young people have access to more information than ever before and are often inundated with contradictory messages about healthy relationships. After attending this program we hope parents will feel knowledgeable and confident about discussing this topic with their children.
This program is for parents only. If you’re interested in bringing Love Shouldn’t Hurt to your teen’s youth group, synagogue, Jewish day school, or summer camp, contact Rebecca Brown at (770) 677- 9371.
