The Love Doesn't Hurt presentation is a 30-45 minute long program that discusses topics that children of this age may be seeing around them.
After the presentation the students are asked to draw a picture based on our discussion and we help them with ideas. The actual drawing can be done at school or at home, whichever works best for your school. A panel of judges selects the contest winners. We will announce the deadline after scheduling the presentations so everyone has an opportunity to participate.
Congratulations to Addison Naslund of Beadle Elementary School who won the
River City Domestic Violence Center provides presentations regarding teen dating and healthy relationships to area 8th graders. This program offers teens insight on how to honestly assess the health of relationships, particularly romantic relationships and platonic friendships, and then presents concrete steps to help teens end unhealthy relationships. Students will learn to define and identify examples of healthy relationships, understand the red flags that may indicate an unhealthy relationship and learn tactics for ending an unhealthy relationship. The presentation includes both interactive activities and a 16 minute video in which real teens share their experiences covering a broad spectrum of unhealthy relationships from a once good friendship that has gone bad, to a romantic relationship that has become abusive.
