Teens are sometimes more willing to talk to doctors, especially if their parents are not in the room.

While it's possible that dating violence could cause thoughts of suicide, it's also possible that children who are depressed are more likely than others to fall into abusive relationships, says Adiaha Spinks-Franklin,​ a developmental and behavioral pediatrician at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston who was not involved in the new study.

Assaults by romantic partners often aren't isolated events.

Boys and girls who have been victims of dating violence are more likely to get into fights, carry a weapon, use alcohol, use marijuana or cocaine and have sex with multiple partners the study says.
