How to Protect Your Daughter from an Unhealthy Relationship

For parents who are concerned that their daughter is in an unhealthy or abusive relationship, here at last is a book based on personal experience and authoritative research that provides answers. Dating violence affects a huge number of teenage girls — one in three girls between the ages of ten and eighteen reports having been assaulted by a boyfriend — and can run the gamut from possessiveness to stalking to outright physical abuse.
