The warning signs of domestic violence can come in many different ways. Steve Vickman, director of HELP of Door County, says when it comes to teen dating violence the red flags of an abusive relationship can show up at school as well as at home.
Vickman says other signs of an abusive relationship can be excessive texting, phone calls or visiting with the boyfriend or girlfriend. One in three teens in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, according to loveisrespect.org.
