These are the most common forms of physical violence in dating relationships.

In contrast, severe violence includes acts for which the risk of permanent or serious injury is high.

Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.

Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.

The 2015 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey [2.77 MB,180 Pages, 508] found that nearly 12% of high school females reported physical violence and nearly 16% reported sexual violence from a dating partner in the 12 months* before they were surveyed. As teens develop emotionally, they are heavily influenced by experiences in their relationships.

For high school males, more than 7% reported physical violence and about 5% reported sexual violence from a dating partner. Healthy relationship behaviors can have a positive effect on a teen’s emotional development.

Physical Violence occurs when one partner uses physical force to control the other.

This paper considers how dating violence is defined, what its consequences are, and what can be done about it.

According to a Canadian study, severe violence is relatively rare.

It includes behaviour such as hitting a partner with a hard object or assault with weapons.

It is expressed in a range of harmful behaviours — from threats, to emotional maltreatment, to physical and sexual aggression.

While some forms of abusive behaviour, such as acts of physical assault, could result in charges under the Criminal Code of Canada, others, such as ridiculing or otherwise being verbally abusive, are harmful but not criminal offences.

That said, if you Google "Snapchat screenshot" you will quickly see that's not true... Word of advice: Be careful with those head shots, if you know what we mean.

    Needless to say, you can call me the expert on how to make creamy enchiladas. Start by chopping up some onion, pepper, and garlic. I found out that shelling shrimp is my least favorite thing to do. Make your cheese sauce and add a little to the shrimp and the rest we’re going to smother the enchiladas with.

    I’d already gone two years ago and didn’t enjoy it. When the opportunity was presented to — or rather, forced upon — me, I realized that it presented a sort of social experiment.
