Talk with Your Teen about Healthy Relationships 


Take Action!

Talk with your kids to help them develop realistic and healthy expectations for relationships.

Share the facts about healthy relationships.
You can help your teen develop problem-solving skills by asking how he’d handle different situations. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Ask your child, “What would you do if:

  • think your friend’s partner isn’t treating him right?”
  • ...your partner is calling you to come over whenever you try to hang out with your friends?”
  • see a friend yelling at his girlfriend in front of everyone at a party?”

It might help to use examples of relationships from TV, movies, or video games to start the conversation.

Be sure to listen respectfully to your teen’s answer, even if you don’t agree. Then you can offer your opinion and explore other options together.
