Chris Brown and Rihanna's domestic abuse allegations have placed a national spotlight on this silent epidemic. Research shows that one in three teenagers know someone their age who's been hit, kicked, or choked by their partner. Other research suggests that 98 percent of teenage girls who have been abused continue to date their abuser. Do you know someone who is in an abusive relationship? Is she too frightened or embarrassed to talk to her parents? Is she afraid to leave her boyfriend? Or are you the one who has attacked your girlfriend? Do you struggle with anger issues, but don't know how to ask for help?
This Teen Talk forum is a safe place to discuss your dating issues. If you are being abused, the following agencies provide information for teens dealing with relationship violence.

It doesn't just stop at the physical

Why is it that everyone always focuses on the physical part of domestic violence.  It doens't just stop there.  Yes, physical abuse is serious however eventually the bruises go away, cuts heal as well as the body.  But the emotional and mental scars last longer and involves more tp heal.  Please lets not forget the damage that emotional abuse leaves a victim.  How torn down they feel and to the point where they feel completely worthless.  A feeling that could promote someone to harm themselves or even commit suicide.  I was one of those.  Scars so deep that I have a hard time even finding a mate or even come close to being able to have a successful relationship.
