Episode 037: How Abusive Relationships Sneak Up On You
Most people don’t knowingly sign up for an abusive relationship. Yet many of us find ourselves in relationships that become more toxic over time. How does this happen? Is it because we ignore warning signs? Were we manipulated? Is it because we grew up with abuse? Are we naive or blind to what’s in front of us? Are we so desperate for love that we will tolerate a certain level of abuse?
In this moving conversation, Lana Wolfe and I explore how a seemingly good relationship went bad, what warning signs were missed or ignored, and how one fateful night she nearly lost her life. She shares painful lessons learned and how to spot red flags any one of us could miss. Do you know the early signs of abusive behavior? Could you advise your teen on how to avoid abusive relationships?
If you answered “No” to either of those questions, you won’t want to miss this important conversation about domestic abuse, teen dating violence, mental health and how to talk to your teen about it
