I think if your child or teen is being abusive to their partner, it's important to understand that it's not just young me, it's also young women. One of the things you can do is hold them accountable for that. "I saw this. This isn't okay." It's important for parents to get involved. When you do confront them, it's not about saying they are horrible. It's about saying, "This is not okay." Maybe that involves getting them some counselling. Maybe contacting Levels of Respect and finding them a domestic abuse center that can get them some counselling, specific help that can be around battery intervention or abusive behavior in a relationship. Levels of Respect is a great place to go, but it's also making sure that when you see it, you say something. You don't let it go. You don't let it go by.
