Teen dating violence is down, but boys still report more violence than girls Science, Health & Technology.

When it comes to teen dating violence, boys are more likely to report being the victim of violence—being hit, slapped, or pushed—than girls.

That’s the surprising finding of new research from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University.

“It could be that it’s still socially acceptable for girls to hit or slap boys in dating relationships,” she said. »
