Winter Weather Preparation

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Food City Pharmacy wants you to know that there’s a lot you can do as a parent to prevent teen dating violence and abuse.

Almost 1 in 10 teens reports being physically abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend in the last year. One of the most important things you can do is keep the lines of communication open with your kids.

Take steps to make a difference:

  • Be a role model - treat your kids and others with respect.
  • Start talking to your kids about healthy relationships early - before they start dating.
  • Get involved with efforts to prevent dating violence at your teen’s school.
  • Call the National Dating Abuse Helpline at 1-866-331-9474 or text “loveis” to 77054, if you are worried about your teen.

You can help keep your loved ones safe and healthy.
