Everything You Need to Know About Relationship Violence by Katherine White


I read this book because my son had to do a final project in Middle School where he chose his own topic and presented it in a paper and in front of his peers. He chose Relationship Violence on the Internet.

This book is appropriate for even a 10 or 11 year old, boy or girl. Unfortunately relationship violence can happen at any age, even between girls or with parents. The author uses age appropriate language to explain that the violence does not need to by physical. It can be violence if someone repeatedly undermines your self esteem.

The book discusses indicators of an abusive relationship, parts of a healthy relationship, what to do if you think a friend is involved in an abusive relationship, and where to get help. There is a bibliography for further reading, an index, and a list of organizations you can contact for help or more information.

The Need to Know LIbrary, ISBN 0-8239-3398-9, 64 pages, index.
