Recently, we have been talking a lot about “teen dating violence”. It can affect you guys. Violence in dating can be  physical, emotional and / or sexual.

The first one occurs when the partner is assaulted physically, through such actions as kicks, slaps, and being pulled about.

Emotional violence, on the other hand , occurs when the partner is threatened or his/her self-esteem is damaged.

Sexual violence emerged when one tries to have a sexual relationship with you and tries to force themselves on you without your consent.

This type of violence towards you can be also undertaken online as well as face to face. When online that can also include sharing inappropriate sexually explicit photos with you.

What could you do to stop this type of abuse from happening to you?

Try expressing what you feel to your partner and especially what you like and what you don’t like when they do something to you.

If they continue to mistreat you when you have asked them to stop then you could think about calling Telefono Azzurro.  We are here to help you with your problems, give you guidance and help you keep yoursef safe from harm.
