Telling It Like It Is: Teen Perspectives on Romantic Relationships

The majority of teens have been involved in a romantic relationship.

This brief, Telling It Like It Is: Teen Perspectives on Romantic Relationships, summarizes findings from focus groups that explored what teens themselves have to say about these relationships. 
 


Among the findings:

– Teens view respect, trust, and love as essential to healthy relationships.

– Teens have a clear understanding and expectation of what defines a healthy romantic relationship.

– Teens’ relationships typically fall short of their own standards of healthy romantic relationships.

– Infidelity, relationship violence, and few role models contribute to teens’ low expectations for healthy relationships.
