Dating Violence via the Internet

A new study warns that teens in relationships are being traumatized not just by physical violence, but by stalking texts and Internet messages. Researchers from Michigan State University found that girls 13-19 who were victims of this type of abuse were four times more likely to smoke and were at an increased risk for eating disorders, depression and partaking in risky sexual behavior, says Science Daily News.
