Signs of an Unhealthy Teen Relationship

In life we all want to be loved, and sometimes as a young person we want to be loved so much that we forget to be aware of signs that we may be in a bad situation. Below are some cues to consider if you are concerned that you or someone you know is in an emotionally or physically unhealthy relationship:

  • Isolation from friends and family
  • Extreme Jealously
  • Loss of interest in activities that were once pleasurable
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Frequent arguments
  • Extreme changes in the teen's personality around the partner
  • One of the teens is very controlling
  • Bruises and/or injuries that can't be easily explained
  • Decrease in academic performance or grades
  • A big age difference between the partners
  • Feelings that the teen can't tell trusted persons about arguments occurring in the relationship
  • Feelings of worthlessness

If any of these points applies to you or someone you may know, don't hesitate to reach up and out to a trusted person, or you may contact me through this site.
