Nationally, one in three teens will experience physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse in a dating relationship, according to loveisrespect.org. And one in 10 have been purposefully slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend.
In an effort to raise awareness about teen dating violence, the National Youth Advisory Board will host Respect Week Feb. 8-12, 2016. Tuesday, Feb. 9, is Wear Orange Day, and everyone is urged to break out their orange shirts, fingernail polish, shoestrings or jackets to help spread the word that dating violence is a real problem.
