12 Percent of Teens Experience Dating Violence

first_imgOctober is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.INDIANAPOLIS – Romantic notes, hand holding and first kisses – young love is typically full of blissful moments.But that’s not the case for all Indiana teenagers.Colleen Yeakle, coordinator of prevention initiatives for Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, says an estimated 12 percent of teens experience some form of dating abuse each year that can result in emotional or social difficulties, physical injuries and trouble learning.“We see a lot of things ranging from physical forms of abuse to emotional abuse, name calling, put-downs,” she explains. “You know, it’s typically a series of behavior used to make the person feel not good about themselves, to feel dependent on their partner, to feel controlled.”The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has designated October Domestic ViolenceAwareness Month.Yeakle says her organization is encouraging parents to talk to their teens about healthy, responsible dating relationships to show them what respectful behavior is so they can give and expect to receive it from a dating partner.Yeakle says a national study found only about 25 percent of parents reported talking with their child about dating relationships. But she says having the conversation can help to prevent dating abuse, and show the child that his or parents’ door is always open.“It’ll let your kids know, ‘You know, we’re here for you as parents if you ever have trouble,’ because you’ve already started having those conversations early,” she says. “You’ve really set the stage to enable your kids to come to you if they are having trouble.”Yeakle stresses engaging in conversations about preventing abuse and standing for healthy behaviors is also important in schools, at sports clubs and youth service organizations.“That’s where kids really learn how relationships work and if we can guide them toward respectful relationship behaviors, we’ll have a lot less abuse to respond to,” she points out.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year.Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

WBC Gives Go ahead for Joshua, Fury World Title Fight

first_imgAnthony Joshua and Tyson Fury relished the opportunity to talk up their British rivalry as they received the go-ahead for an undisputed world title clash next year.The WBC has confirmed Fury has no restrictions to prevent a blockbuster battle with Joshua after WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte suffered a shock loss to Alexander Povetkin last weekend.Mauricio Sulaiman, the WBC president, has revealed how Joshua was in line for a WBC title fight earlier in his career, but the governing body would still welcome a fight between their belt holder and the WBA, IBF and WBO champion. Sulaiman told Sky Sports: “Joshua fought for the IBF title when he was WBC No 2, and he received an opportunity, so we understand and appreciate that he got an opportunity and went in a different direction, however, the WBC was the first organisation to rank him, ranking in the top 10, top five.“We knew the value of Joshua.“Joshua to do an ultimate unification with Wilder, if he wins, or Fury if he retains, would be magnanimous.”Unified champion Joshua remains confident he can topple Fury, predicting how he would overpower the WBC champion during an appearance on ‘A League of Their Own.’“First six, I know I’m going to take him out,” said Joshua. “I’ve had a shorter career, so I’m fresher. Been in the deep end longer, so I’m used to the pressure.“I believe I’m going to handle the pressure and I’m going to take him out.”“I believe I’m better than Wilder, faster, whatever you want to call it. I reckon I’m going to be doing this for another 10 years.”Fury made a typically swift response on social media, saying: “I would batter Joshua inside the first round.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
