One in three girls will be in a controlling, abusive dating
relationship before she graduates from high school - from verbal or
emotional abuse to sexual abuse or physical battering. Is your
daughter in danger?
Dr. Jill Murray speaks on the topic of dating violence at high
schools around the country, reaching more than 10,000 students,
teachers, and counsellors each year. In every school she visits,
she is approached by teenage girls in miserable relationships who,
when confronted with the option of breaking up with the boy,
exclaim, "But I love him "
Many young women - and their parents, aren't even aware of the
indications of a potentially abusive relationship. What's most
alarming is that these warning signs are also some of the
behaviours that girls find most flattering:
A boy pages and calls a girl often - but as a form of control,
He wants to spend all his time with her, but eventually won't
allow her to spend time with her friends.
He says "I love you" very early in the relationship.
These behaviours can escalate into blaming, isolating,
manipulating, threatening, humiliation, and sexual and physical
In "But I Love Him, " Dr. Murray identifies these controlling,
abusive patterns of behaviour and helps you get your daughter out
of the relationship without alienating her. You will learn what
draws her to this type of relationship, why she has a hard time
talking to you about it, the special barriers teens face when
breaking off a relationship, and what's going on in the mind of a
teen abuser. Dr. Murray will help you show your teen what a
respectful relationship looks like, and teach her the importance of
respecting herself. "edition."
