Format: Paperback
Domestic Violence crisis counselor Gaddis is wakes in the middle of the night with a phone call and asked to come to the hospital. There she comes to the rescue of Anna, a teen who runs away from her overbearing father's rules and into the arms of a man who eventually lands her in the hospital with cuts and bruises.

Throughout the book, similar stories are shared. Jennifer meets and soon marries one of her church's youth group leaders who eventually becomes very abusive.

31 year old paraplegic who lost was paralyzed after an abusive boyfriend threw her down a flight of stairs. He got four years in jail and three on probation while she is forever imprisoned inside her own body.

And then one about how a mother who was able to prevent a teen from being in an even worse relationship by catching her daughter in a lie about where she was going and who she was with. Soon, it was revealed that a boyfriend had been making this woman's daughter tell lies so that he could continue abusing her.

Gaddis also drives home the point that an assertive teen is often not an abused teen and the best methods of prevention is ensuring our children grow up with a healthy sense of self.

Dangerous Dating offers parents warning signs of an abusive relationship and signs to decipher if your teen is in one. Written for parents and teens, this book is a worthwhile resource to keep on the bookshelf.

My only complaint is its desperately in need of a revised edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a great little handbook for parents wishing to know more about how to protect their daughters from violent relationships.
All of the information is there: How to help, where to go for resources, plus lots of compassion for parents and teens alike who have been in the grip of a violent relationship. I have read a lot of books on the topic of domestic violence and teen dating relationships but this book is by far the very best, mainly because the author obviously is not wrapped up in theory. Her information is based on real-life cases that have a connective quality with the reader.

Format: Paperback
The author encourages parents to take a controlling and authoritarian approach to parenting. Advising young men to join the 'Promise Keepers' to learn about good relationships would have to go down in history as the silliest violence prevention strategy I have ever come across.
She has a chatty easy to read writing style, which parents will relate to, and I don't doubt her good intentions and commitment to eradicating violence, but I fear any parent who actually tries to implement her strategies is going to have a very difficult time.
