Love Is Not Abuse 0
Love Is Not Abuse is a go-to resource center for educators and parents to raise awareness about and prevent teen dating violence. Their campaign goes into full gear every February. Watch Tim Gunn, one of my heroes for his calm and caring approach, explain the iPhone app for parents, where they learn about the warning signs of teen dating violence. Parents often don’t know how to talk about abuse, this app helps give them the right language to get started: http://loveisnotabuse.com/web/guest/iphone.
Request a free copy of their high school curriculum here: http://loveisnotabuse.com/web/guest/request-a-free-copy. I’ve just requested my copy, so let me know if you get one too so we can all review it together!
Finally, you and your teen children and/or students can interact directly with Love Is Not Abuse and Seventeen Mag about healthy relationships on Twitter, via #whatlovemeans.
