Summary

Is Your Daughter in Danger? One in three girls will be in a controlling, abusive dating relationship before she graduates from high school -- from verbal or emotional abuse to sexual abuse or physical battering. Many young women -- and their parents -- aren't even aware of the indications of a potentially abusive relationship. What's most alarming is that these warning signs are also some of the behaviors that girls find most flattering: A boy pages and calls a girl often -- but as a form of control, not affection. He wants to spend all his time with her, but eventually he won't allow her to spend time with her friends. He says "I love you" very early in the relationship.

These behaviors can escalate into blame, isolation, manipulation, threats, humiliation, and sexual and physical abuse. In But I Love Him, Dr. Jill Murray identifies these and many other behaviors and helps you get your daughter out of the relationship without alienating her. You will learn what draws her to this type of relationship, the special barriers teens face when breaking off such a relationship, and what's going on in the mind of the teen abuser. Dr. Murray helps you show your teen what a respectful relationship looks like -- and teach her the importance of respecting herself.
