February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month. 

In NJ, we are focused on teaching young people that dating violence affects everyone: survivors, bystanders and their friends, teachers and family members. Throughout the month we will share information about dating violence, what is it, and how you can learn to recognize it and either help or get help. In talking to teens, it’s not always clear what is healthy and what is not. Dating relationships are a new part of life and it can be really hard to know what the boundaries are.

  • How much texting is too much?  
  • How much “togetherness” is too much and,
  • How fast is too fast to get serious?

Something to look out for is how scared someone or some action makes you feel. It’s important to pay attention to those feelings, whether felt by the person in the relationship or whether observed by someone else who cares. With that in mind…


Where Do You Draw the Line?

Share – via video – what you think are healthy behaviors, not so healthy behaviors, and ones that make you go hmmmm. We’ll take them and create something to help others understand what it looks like to be in a balanced, happy and healthy relationship. Be part of the process with us. The story can be short or long and be as simple or creative as you’d like. If you have any questions, you may contact
