Domestic Violence is not Just a Problem for Adults

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence is not just a problem for adults. According to the 2013 Knox County Schools Youth Risk Behavior Survey, more than 10 percent of Knox County high school students reported they were hit, slapped or physically hurt by their boyfriend or girlfriend in the past year. February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and the Knox County Health Department wants parents to know that they can help prevent teen dating violence and abuse.

To make a difference, parents can:

  • Be a role model - treat your kids and others with respect.
  • Start talking to your kids about healthy relationships early - before they start dating.
  • Contact the Family Violence Helpline at (865) 521-6336 if you're worried about your teen.
