You may be in a relationship right now and not even realize it! You don’t have to be dating someone to be in a relationship. While boyfriends and girlfriends are probably what teens usually associate with the word, there are many other types of relationships out there: parents, siblings, friends and teachers are just a few!
All relationships have their ups and downs, but if a relationship has more downs than ups, or you find yourself dealing with problems like divorce, sexting or cyberbullying, it can feel pretty overwhelming. Safeteens has guides for understanding many common teen relationship problems, tips for handling difficult situations, and resources to get more help. It’s also a good idea to check out our Mind & Body section because having a good relationship with yourself is the cornerstone to having good relationships with other people!
