Protecting Your Teen Daughter From Controlling, Abusive Dating Relationships

Abusive teen dating relationships and dating violence have increased at disturbing rates over the last several years. It is estimated that one in three girls will have an abusive dating experience by the time she graduates from high school - from verbal and emotional abuse, to sexual abuse, to physical battering. Psychotherapist Jill Murray now provides the first book addressed to parents that informs them of the warning signs of potentially controlling and abusive boyfriends, eg he pages and calls often, but as a form of control, not affection, or he says "I love you" too quickly. Parents also will learn what draws their daughter to this type of relationship, why teens don't tell their parents of their fears, the special barriers girls face when breaking off the relationship, and, most important, how they can help their daughter get out of the abusive relationship and develop new, healthier expectations for future ones.
