We all have our own needs at different times within relationships, and it is important to give and take in terms of these needs and to show each other respect. Everyone has the right to feel safe, to be treated fairly, and to be valued and accepted for who they are.
This book examines how young people can negotiate their relationship needs respectfully and safely in partner relationships, friendships and family relationships.
Issues addressed in this book include peer pressure and teen friendships; dating pressures and sexual coercion; domestic violence and abusive relationships; and managing anger and conflict. How do young people identify abusive behaviours in intimate relationships and learn to behave in positive and respectful ways?
