Teen Domestic Violence

Could your teenagers be victims or perpetrators of domestic violence?

You don’t have to look far to see examples of domestic violence.  The headlines and newscasts are full of them.  From the Gabby Petito story and the on-going search for her fiancee Brian Laundrie… to the recent murder of Moyonna Tillman in Clinton, in Prince George’s County by her boyfriend James Kirkland.  He shot himself less than a week later.  October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we’re talking about this issue and in place where you may not think it could happen, with your dating-age children.
