We never think it will happen to our child but 1.5 million teens are the victim of physical violence from their dating partner each year - and even more are affected when you account for emotional, digital, and sexual violence.

Sadly, it’s a reality that millions of teens are dealing with. Fortunately, we can work with our teens to prevent dating violence. Mighty Parenting podcast hosts Judy Davis and Sandy Fowler talk to expert Dr. Shalanda Moten to find out about the various types of dating violence, how to recognize signs of abuse in a relationship, and what our teens need to know about preventing dating violence.
