Song lyrics and teen dating violence
I have never personally experienced dating violence and I am thankful for that; however I have a friend that has.I have seen the struggles that she has been through and the pain that she has felt while in an abusive relationship. We want them to think about what a healthy relationship looks like and what an unhealthy relationship looks like.So when they go into these relationships, they’ll understand more for themselves if this relationship is healthy, if this relationship is unhealthy, and the various forms that relationships come in.They frame their conversations using pop music, asking their younger peers to analyze songs for messages about romantic and personal well-being.Jalisa says the discussions teach young people to think more critically.Because all of them knew the song and they all like knew most of the words to it and were singing it.But when they read the lyrics, they realized how unhealthy the song was.
The research has mainly focused on Caucasian youth, and there are yet no studies which focus specifically on IPV in adolescent same-sex romantic relationships.They saw lyrics like "trying to control you" and different other sexual or disrespectful lyrics inside a song. It like talks about how the relationship’s good and like his love for her and support and how it’s like he wants to be good for her. And all the positive things that a relationship like trust and loyalty and communication. JAQUIL: A lot of the time, rap or urban city music is being blamed for these negative messages. NCFY: Jaquil says there’s no more fitting way to get young people interested in issues of personal safety and relationship health.JAQUIL: Seeing that we’re all affected by media, and especially how much teenagers are affected by pop culture, going through music and music videos, the kids can relate to what we’re talking about and they understand.The literature on IPV among adolescents indicates that the rates are similar for the number of girls and boys in heterosexual relationships who report experiencing IPV, or that girls in heterosexual relationships are more likely than their male counterparts to report perpetrating IPV. stated that, unlike domestic violence in general, equal rates of IPV perpetration is a unique characteristic with regard adolescent dating violence, and that this is "perhaps because the period of adolescence, a special developmental state, is accompanied by sexual characteristics that are distinctly different from the characteristics of adult." Wekerle and Wolfe theorized that "a mutually coercive and violent dynamic may form during adolescence, a time when males and females are more equal on a physical level" and that this "physical equality allows girls to assert more power through physical violence than is possible for an adult female attacked by a fully physically mature man." Regarding studies that indicate that girls are as likely or more likely than boys to commit IPV, the authors emphasize that substantial differences exist between the genders, including that girls are significantly more likely than boys to report having experienced severe IPV, such as being threatened with a weapon, punched, strangled, beaten, burned, or raped, and are also substantially more likely than boys to need psychological help or experience physical injuries that require medical help for the abuse, and to report sexual violence as a part of dating violence.They are also more likely to take IPV more seriously.
