There is no doubt that the teenage years are a formative time for young people, especially when it comes to dating and relationships. While it is an exciting and enlightening time, it can also be dangerous. Statistics state that 1in 3 teens in the U.S. are victims of dating abuse from a partner. Yet, 3 in 4 parents say they’ve never talked to their children about it. Joining us with advice on what to say, and the warning signs to watch for, is Angela Mancuso from The Women's Center.
