Presidential Proclamation - National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, 2014 | The White House
It was nice to see you all loved our SARC valentines last week! They reached over 1100 people so thanks for sharing!
Don’t forget that February is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month… Here’s a little bit from the Presidential Proclamation.
"While healthy relationships are built on fairness, equality, and respect, dating violence often involves a pattern of destructive behaviors used to exert power and control over a partner. It can include constantly monitoring, isolating, or insulting a partner; extreme jealousy, insecurity, or possessiveness; or any type of physical violence or unwanted sexual contact.
Each of us can play a role in ending dating violence ‑‑ in our schools, our homes, our neighborhoods, and our dormitories. This month and throughout the year, let every American look out for one another, stand with survivors, speak out against dating violence, and build communities where abuse is never tolerated.”
Keep celebrating healthy relationships throughout February and throughout the year!
1. Making a conscious effort to show how much less you can care than the other person.
2. Taking screenshots of interaction and sharing it with the masses.
3. Hating being lied to, but also lying to others.
4. Taking passive aggressive shots at the person you’re involved with on social media.
5. 90% of interaction happening via text message.
6. (the what are we? conversation)
7. Impassable tests and strange experiments.
Here’s a great article from Thought Catalog - so whether you’re going out on Valentines, staying in, hanging out with friends, or doing your own thing, this is good stuff to think about.
Happy Valentines Day from SARC!
