There was once a time when raising your child meant making sure that they made it through school without too many mishaps to graduation day and out of your house to now finish the job themselves. Well those days are long gone and youth have more to battle. Come on America let's face it, our youth are up againt a lot more than we were as youth. The village that once was is now gone. Even the households have gotten smaller. The youth are out of control and the parents are sitting back and letting them get that way. Join us this Tuesday December 1 @ 9AM EST and chime in.

Youth violence is a public health issue impacting individual youth as well as entire communities. Homicide is the third leading cause of death for young people in our country. In response, some communities are working to reduce the incidents of youth violence and help kids reach their economic, educational, and vocational potential. There are several national projects that are assisting communities examine and address youth violence including, the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention and the Urban Network to Increase Thriving Youth (UNITY). On this episode of Spotlight on Youth, guests will discuss the goals and outcomes of youth violence prevention, the collaboration, strategic planning, and evidence-based programs used to support prevention planning, and provide guidance to other communities interested in integration of violence prevention into public health efforts.

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.
Many attended the special premier of Spike Lee's controversial film, Chiraq last night at the Chicago Theater. Today we'll talk to some of the young men and women who viewed the movie and get their perspective: will the film's focus on sex get young people's attention? Is the idea of withholding sex to get a truce between gangs something young women would possibly agree to? Did the film handle the real matter of children shot dead in a serious enough manner? Would you recommend this movie to your friends? Do you think men and women involved in gang violence will be influenced by this film at all
