Educational programming in our schools also promotes healthy relationships.
It is in accordance with a Florida statute that requires schools to incorporate information about teen dating violence and its prevention into the health education curriculum.

These behaviors can lead to more serious kinds of abuse, such as hitting or stalking, or preventing you from using birth control or protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If a date pays for the date, that does not mean you owe them sex.
