Help of Door County is encouraging conversations between parents and their daughters over what constitutes a healthy relationship. The goal is to promote a safer environment for dating teens. One out of five teenagers nationally has experienced some form of abuse while in a relationship. Milly Gonzales, executive director of Help of Door County says there are ways to prevent teens from ending up in a violent dating relationship.
Gonzales says Help’s FYRE program, which stands for Forging Youth Relationships and Education, offers an educational opportunity for teens every week. This article is the last in a series during National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
