Gr 7-12 "This examination of dangerous relationships in all forms - between parent and child, siblings, peers, or boyfriends/girlfriends - details the warning signs of an abusive relationship. They range from peer pressure to manipulation to physical violence and emotional abuse. Even though viewers may believe that it won't happen to them, they must understand that dangerous relationships can happen to anyone. The realistic use of physical violence helps the video make a strong stand against abuse. Excellent narration moves the program along and helps drive the main point home. The perpetrators and victims are portrayed by Caucasian and African-American actors, demonstrating that dangerous relationships cross all racial lines. After detailing the warning signs, the narrator goes on to explain ways one can leave the relationship - including getting parents, the school, or the authorities involved. The video also shows how dangerous relationships can quickly destroy one's life and dreams, making it impossible to function in society. This well-done production explains ways to avoid abusive relationships and tells those who are already in dangerous relationships how to get help. A fine supplemental purchase for guidance and health classes."
