Tonight, we are partnering with Capital Pride Alliance for Gay Pride Week!The following developmental tasks are interrupted because of this isolation: Because teens lack experience with intimate relationships, those in abusive relationships often have difficulty defining abuse as problematic.Young people may perceive jealousy and controlling behavior as loving devotion.
