Teaching for life means helping them lead the way to an even less violent world.
The new CDC survey adds to its prior research into the prevalence of dating violence, but the latest version asked updated questions that include sexual violence and more accurately portray violent behaviors, the study authors say.
Most of the teens surveyed reported experiencing such violence more than one time.
The findings also showed that those who experienced some form of dating violence also had a higher prevalence of other health risks like drinking alcohol, using drugs or thinking about suicide.
Future research should look at the frequency of violence in teen dating relationships and how that may harm teens’ health, the researchers conclude.
For boys, about 4% reported experiencing physical violence, 3% experienced sexual violence and 10% experienced any type.
Teaching for life means giving children instruction as well as opportunities to practice behaviors in a lot of different settings so that they are ready to use those behaviors in situations that do not involve you.
The survey asked about 9,900 high school students whether they had experienced some type of violence from someone they dated.
Almost 21% said they were the victim of some type of dating-related violence.
We look forward to sharing even more information about children, families, development, well-being, and safety.
