Dating Should Never Hurt
Parkway Students Observe Respect Week
Relationships can be tricky at any age, but especially during the teenage years.
February is Dating Violence Awareness Month and to help increase awareness of dating abuse and promote healthy relationships, Parkway students participated in Respect Week.
Various activities were held in conjunction with Samaritan Counseling Center, Project Celebration and the YWCA. Orange bracelets printed with the words #ChooseRespect were given out and students wore orange another day. Orange is the designated color for dating abuse awareness and for promoting respectful and healthy relationships.
A hallway also served as a template for students to write their answer to the question “What is love?” and dating violence educators provided information during various classes in which warning signs of unhealthy relationships were identified. Some of those red flags include ignoring their partner’s feelings or opinions, criticizing hobbies/interests, fearing a boy or girlfriend’s anger and actions as well as frequent jealousy.
Early relationships often set the stage for success in life and education is a key component in making healthy and informed choices. By participating in Respect Week, Parkway students are better educated and know that while love has many definitions, abuse is not one of them.
