Guiding Children to Healthy Relationships

If children learn by example, are we giving them the right ones?  Do they see compassion, trust and respect in the relationships around them? Or do they see jealousy, control and manipulation? Children who learn about healthy relationships are less likely to be the victims of relationship violence later in life.  Come learn ways to talk with the children (and teens) about healthy relationships and how to recognize the signs of abuse for themselves and their friends.  Ideal for any adult who wants to stop the cycle of violence.
