Teenage dating violence is a dangerous problem that needs more attention. Teen domestic violence is the physical, sexual, emotional or violence. During my research, I noticed and came across a large number of percentage rates of teenagers who are or once experienced abuse in their Teen relationship. The huge amount of individuals who deals with these behaviors from their significant other are not doing anything better for themselves if they do not speak up and ask for help from anyone. In order for teenagers to get the help that is needed they will need to open up to a specialist or even a school counselor and others who are involved and can relate to those teenagers who suffer from domestic abuse and to be able to identify the things that come along with dating violence and the things they should know and To also have an understanding of what is going on and what defines an abusive relationship. Domestic teen violence is beginning to become the most common than another age group.
There are 1.5 million high school boys and girls in the U.S.
admit to being intentionally hit or physically harmed in the last year by someone they are romantically involved with. This can also cause emotional abuse, verbal and physical abuse and it leaves the person who is being abused by their significant other hard for them to leave because they are too scared knowing what would happen if they do. Teens are still young and are not matured yet and are not ready to be in a relationship with adults. This is how situations that involve jealousy happen because a teen who cannot communicate and explain his or her feelings in a mature way so instead they rather attack their girlfriend or boyfriend or begin to call them all kind of bad names. However, this does make teen violence be okay to do.Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime. Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.
However, these behaviors can become abusive and develop into more serious forms of violence. Also a teen who witnesses his or her parents constantly going back and forth with one another or even see one of them being physically or verbally abused they soon to begin to think that it is something they should do as well. Since some teens are new to being in a relationship they don’t really know what to do or how to be in one so they take notes on what goes on in their household and they assume that, that’s how a relationship should be.
Treating others with respect are a few ways to keep relationships healthy and nonviolent. Teens receive messages about how to behave in relationships with peers, adults in their lives, and the media. All too often these examples suggest that violence in a relationship is normal, but violence is never acceptable.
There are reasons why violence occurs. Asking advice and receiving advice from others can sometimes make a relationship worse because people are not always the best to try and help you out also others significant others may not enjoy the fact that you are sharing information about your relationship to others weather if it’s for a good cause or not.Violent behavior often begins between 6th and 12th grade. 72% of 13 and 14-year-olds are “dating.” most of the times the teen’s parents do not know about them having a significant because some parents might to accept it because of their age so most times they keep it as a secret and get themselves in a situation they now cannot get out of. Teenagers are too scared to get help because they are afraid that it might backfire on them and they don’t think something can really be done about it.
Instead of seeking for help they rather walk around being in a mentally and physically abusive relationship and not speaking up for themselves.Every relationship is different, but the things that unhealthy and abusive relationships have in common are issues of power and control. While being in an abusive relationship there is always one of the significant others who do all of the controlling while the other just obeys whatThe other says to them or tell them what to do. People always ask ” why won’t you just leave” its easy for others to say because they are not the one being put through it. They are scared and is unable to leave because they are unsure what will happen if they do because their spouse has them hooked. Without no one to talk to also makes things worse.
healthy relationships can have a positive effect on a teen’s emotional development. Teens learn valuable lessons about how to communicate, how to set boundaries, and how to show and receive affection.Unhealthy abusive or violent relationships, on the other hand, have a negative effect on teen development. Victims of dating violence are more likely to struggle in school. They also report higher rates of binge drinking suicide attempts and physical fighting. In some cases, victims will carry this pattern of violence into future relationships. However, there has to be something in order to fix this and help those who need. It is normal for people who care about each other to get upset with each other sometimes.
People in healthy relationships sometimes yell and say mean things that they later wish they had not. In healthy couples, each partner accepts his or her share of responsibility for what went wrong apologizes and hopefully learns to deal with conflict in less upsetting ways. Yelling and saying mean things in a conflict is not the same as someone trying to control another person through violence. Which are some reasons why domestic violence goes on today all over the world?Not only is physical abuse an example of teen domestic violence there are also other ways that can start off being abusive just by aggressive behavior.
Being yelled at name calling or even threats can lead to domestic violence. Some teens do not believe that this is nowhere near any type of violence because of the things they are being to told by others for example if a significant other is feeding you a bunch of lies saying how much they care and love you, your going to always stick around because you believe it. Young teens often do not believe that any of these signs or kind of control is abuse. However, they rather stay around and being told what they can or not do and being treated like an unwanted animal. In order for someone to leave an abusive relationship that person will have to be able to put aside all the love and feelings, he/she may feel for their partner.
They should be able to know what they plan is going to be and where they will be allowed to get some help from anyone and how to be able to survive on their own. The best way for someone to leave is to be able to make their own choices even if they seem to have another person helping out with their problems and other things it’s always good to have your own mind and different ways of seeing things. Leaving these type of situations is always the safest and smartest choice. Which is why having your own opinion and mindset on things will be able to help yourself.Teenage dating violence has a very negative impact on everything.
Teen domestic violence can lead to a lot of serious situations that nobody knows which is depression. Not only is depression something that teens suffer from teens also happens to lose friends because they insist to choose their spouse before them because they are scared what will happen although their friends does not know what is happening. The longer someone decides to stay in a abusive relationship their spouse will begin to get more aggressive because he/she is already beginning to become more comfortable and the other is allowing it. However the more this happens to a teen and nothing is done about it the more they both will believe that there is nothing wrong with domestic teen violence if they are aware of it.Teenagers age 18 and 19 experience the highest rates of stalking.Today stalking is an example of abusive behavior because it happens to be unwanted attention and harassment.
During my research reading articles and real-life stories I have come across is that after a domestic violence relationship have been dealing with stalking from a previous partner even after the relationship. Examples of stalking would be invading someone’s personal space such as sending gifts that are not wanted randomly showing at their house and even constantly calling. Someone who is being a stalker I believe thinks they have the power of the person they are stalking because stalking can go further it can turn into threats or things that could possibly end up to physical altercations with one another. Being stalked can last a lifetime if nothing gets done about and the person is not willing to find a way for them to be safe in no kind of way.Teens who are currently enrolled in school who suffers from domestic violence has a hard time dealing with this situation while also coming to school every day not knowing what could happen to them that day. Schools often have counselors for their students to seek for some help but sometimes no one is interested in doing so instead they deal with everything on their own.
It makes it hard for teachers to realize what goes on in their own classes because the one who is going through a depression and currently being abused cannot even tell because they will not speak up until someone does so for them. Teens often have themselves a group of friends or that one person that feel like they can share any and everything with but that all changes once one person comes around and changes it for them and they are left with no kind of help at all. The only way these teens will be able to get help is if they do it on their own as long as they actually want it.81 percent of parents either don’t think teen dating violence is an issue or don’t know if it’s an issue. In the United States 1.5 million high school students experience dating violence every year and only 33 percent of them report the abuse. Those who say something typically talk to a friend. Parents seem s to always believe that they know the most about their children, in reality, they do not know what they may be going through at the time because they are not being told.
By parents not believing that its an issue is part of the reasons why it happens because they have no one to be able to come to and talk about it. And parents sometimes never bother to care to talk and see what’s been going on with their child.Teens who suffer from domestic violence have experienced the cycle of violence. The cycle of violence has three stages tension building which is the victim how trys to see the good in the situations and make things better than what it is. The honeymoon is who sets up counseling and seek help for the unhealthy relationship. Lastly is the acute explosion will be the one who never stays and fight back instead they rather leave. This cycle is not always the same for others because some does not follow through it but there are some who begin to get so comfortable with it and they often feel there is something they could do for the abuser to stop what they are doing.
Teaching young people about healthy relationships and ways to avoid physical dating violence can reduce physical and sexual dating violence by 60%. The purpose of this research paper was to explain and prove to readers how teen domestic violence is currently a social issue in today’s society. Finding and researching a lot of information that became very helpful for my paper led me to get more into the research knowing that there are others who still goes through this problem with no help. Without any help from anyone or finding anyways that is possible to help those who are in need of help I believe will really help and change the percent rate that there is in today’s society.
Also, the teens who still suffers will soon decide to leave their abusive relationship and will not be scared to ask for help.
