Want to talk to kids about dating violence? Better start young

I read this startling story in the New York Times about how young dating - and dating violence - begins. It talked about one study that found “that three-quarters of students had already had a boyfriend or girlfriend. One in three said they had been victims of psychological dating violence; nearly one in six said they had experienced physical dating violence. Almost half said they had been touched in an unwanted sexual way or had been the target of sexual slurs.

The article talks about efforts to educate kids before it happens to them.
