The words domestic violence are usually assoiciated with an adult woman being abused by an adult male. One in four women will be affected by some form of domestic violence, in their lifetime. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. http://www.ncadv.org/need-support/what-is-domestic-violence.
With awareness growing, studies have been geared to teen domestic violence. The statistics are alarming. http://www.loveisrespect.org/resources/dating-violence-statistics/ Over 1.5 million high school students will experience some form of physical abuse, this year. 43% of college dating women have reported some form of abuse. These numbers only include the reported number of cases. Statistically, only 33% of those vicitims every told anyone about the abuse. Parents that were surveyed don't believe that teen domestic violence is an issue (81%). The shocking part, only 58% of parents could identify the signs of an abusive relationship.
Organizations can spread awareness, but education is needed for our teens. As of July 2014, only 22 states had some form of legislation; in place, that addresses education for teen dating violence. http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/teen-dating-violence.aspx
Spreading awareness is a step in the right direction, but without educational programs we could see these statistics continue to grow.

There are federal laws saying convicted domestic violence abusers can't buy guns, but what if they already own firearms? There's a good chance they can just keep them and no police or judges or even laws will make them surrender what they already own. And even if a state does require relinquishment it's up to judges to require it. Shannon Frattacoli, PhD., Associate Director for Outreach, Center for Injury Research and Policy at Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research has studied the effects of gun injury prevention policies. She will join us to talk about domestic violence, guns, and public policy laws.

On Firday @ 7:30 EST Join me and experts as we discuss DV at blogtalk.com/blogtalkusa or call in (347) 855-8118. Domestic Violence against women should be viewed as violence against the community. We should see men’s violence against women as not stemming from individual pathology, but rather from a socially reinforced sense of entitlement. Continuously viewing this problem from an individual standpoint will never heal a nation. We must cut at the roots of the problem and not at the branches! We must reexamine the methods and assumptions in which men and women are educated about preventing and stopping Domestic Violence.
