February is dating violence awareness month
Without a doubt, February is the month of love. Valentine’s Day provides wonderful chances for young sweethearts to offer tender expressions of their feelings. It might be flowers, or chocolate. It might be a romantic candlelight dinner. It might be a beautiful card or love letter.
But for all too many young people, their dating relationships are not tender. They are not sweet. They are not romantic. Instead, they are pressured, intense and jealous. They hold threats, fear and anxiety. They are filled with abuse.
