What are your relationships or the relationships of your family & friends like? What do you want in a partner?
Do you think there is a good way to argue? Do you think there are unfair ways to argue? Have you ever argued unfairly? What could you have done to make it a fair argument?
Have you witnessed unhealthy relationships or dating abuse? How does it make you feel? Were you scared?
What does it mean to stand up for yourself? When you stand up for yourself, how does it make you feel? Do you think you are being strong, bossy or pushy? Why?
Do you know what you would do if you witnessed or experienced abuse?
