Though there is more intimate violence against women, there is also intimate violence against men.
Furthermore, most of intimate violence occurs in the victim’s home.
As with most parenting issues concerning teens, one of the best things we can do is to talk to our teens about the possible dangers of dating online, experts say.
Though teens think they know everything, they really can be naïve and trusting just when they need to be wary and skeptical.
At least that’s what teens said in a recent story about online romance in the student newspaper at my daughters’ suburban Maryland high school.
According to that story, “students initiate relationships online to meet new people, avoid stressful in-person meetings and hide their dating lives from their parents.” That’s certainly the case for some kids, according to my 17-year-old.
Double-dating or going out in a group is a good choice in this situation.
Plus, there’s time to think about how to respond in the most perfect, witty way, which just doesn’t happen in that awkward moment when you’re trying to talk to a crush.
Still, my daughter says, talking and flirting online really isn’t the same as doing so in person.
It’s important to make sure teens understand that they should never provide personal information to strangers, such as where they go to school, and never agree to meet someone in person without bringing along a responsible adult.
