Dating Violence

February 3rd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

The mother of a 19-year-old who was killed by her boyfriend is dedicating herself to stopping dating violence.

Studies show one in five teens has been the victim of dating violence. Kim Barwick, whose daughter Tiffany was killed after she tried to break off a relationship is working to let students know that a failed romance at an early age is not the end of the world.

“I think they just need to know that life does go on, Barwick said. That there are a lot of other people out there that might want to have a relationship with them, that it might work out with someone else, but that in that particular relationship, it takes two people. If one person does not want to be in that relationship, they have to be willing to accept that and be able to walk away with it.”

School officials say the internet, text messaging and social networking sites are all new technological ways young men and women are being threatened when young love goes bad.
