According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 adolescents will experience some form of abuse in an intimate relationship before they graduate from high school. Of those who do experience abusive relationships, only 33 percent tell someone. The majority of those who experience teen dating violence suffer in silence.
One way to lower these statistics is to strengthen teen-adult relationships.
