Dating Violence

  • This past summer I attended a workshop sponsored by Rutgers School of Social Work, presented by Monique Perlman.  The focus was on violence against women in middle and high school.  Discussion was around the signs of dating violence and risk factors.  Most significant for me was Ms. Perlman's comments on texting, and the fact that our young girls can be subjected to twenty-four hours of control by their boyfriends.  It is very important to educate our youngsters early on about limits and boundaries with technology.  Thank you Ms. Perlman for sharing your knowledge.
