Love Is In the Air…Is That Why I’m Sneezing?!

February is here and we’re celebrating Relationship Wellness in the library!  Woo hoo!  Let’s get started with some quick quizzes:

Healthy vs. Unhealthy Relationships – the quick version
(BTW, these signs can apply to any relationship – dating, married, friends, parents, children, etc.)

In a healthy relationship:

  • Both people feel respected, supported, and valued
  • Decisions are made together
  • Both people have friends and interests outside of the relationship
  • Disagreements are settled with open and honest communication
  • There are more good times than bad

In an unhealthy relationship:

  • One person tries to change the other
  • One person makes most or all of the decisions
  • One or both people drop friends and interests outside of the relationship
  • One person yells, threatens, hits, or throws things during arguments
  • One person makes fun of the other’s opinions or interests
  • One person keeps track of the other all the time by calling, texting, or checking in with friends
  • There are more bad times than good

This is taken from HealthFinder.gov – Talk with Your Teen about Healthy Relationships
