Dating amongst Teenagers Problems

It is quite often heard of that a middle school girl was assaulted by none other than her dating partner. Generally, people will have notion that such acts are conducted by an unknown person, but with rapidly growing rate of teenage dating, the stories of “assault’ are surfacing in number.

Many of the teenagers revealed in survey that they were touched and force to touch undesirable places against their wish.

Some others also revealed that they had to share their pocket money and other precious things with their girl friend or boyfriend and all this was against kind of “blackmailing”.

The common reasons for such violence

  • Stage of emotional and social development

Teenage is the period when an individual is neither in the childhood stage nor reaches the maturity of an adult. They are yet in the phase wherein emotional and social development contuses. And this is the period when they are not mature enough emotionally to decide the “right” and “wrong” for themselves. Socially, they are not mature enough to realize who is good for them and who is playing up a fast. And all this put together make things even more difficult and they get prone to being caught in wrong hands.

  • Age of making experiments

Teenagers get into a lot of things because their friends have been doing so, and hence they land up making mistakes ones election and even on carrying on with the relationship.

The saving factor

  • Parental guidance and involvement

Parents need to get involved and guide their teenagers not as preachers but as friends. One has to come down to their level to understand and reciprocate their issues accordingly. Spending quality is the best possible answer to this burning social challenge because your teenager needs to feel that comfort from you.

  • Middle School Intervention Programs

Schools can continue organising more and more such programs to educate the teenagers and address the associated issues.

  • Consulting an expert

If an adult observes an importance of any consultation then it should never fall towards the end of the priority list. Timely intervention from an adult and an expert can save a teenager from the damages which are likely to take place.
