Newswise: Many Teens are Victims of Digital Dating Abuse; Boys Get the Brunt of It

Many Teens are Victims of Digital Dating Abuse; Boys Get the Brunt of It

Florida Atlantic University

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, but there is nothing romantic about new research illuminating how teen dating abuse is manifesting online. A study of U.S. middle and high school students showed that 28.1 percent had been the victim of at least one form of digital dating abuse. More than one-third had been the victim of traditional dating abuse (offline). Boys in heterosexual relationships experienced all forms of digital dating abuse more than girls and were even more likely to experience physical aggression.
