Social and emotional maturity are intertwined. Therefore, as teens' emotional maturity increases, their relationships with their peers change as they become more vulnerable and emotionally intimate with their peers. This increased vulnerability and intimacy requires greater trust among peers. Thus, during the adolescent years, teen peer groups become increasingly important as teens experience more closeness in these friendships and more gratifying relationships with their peers as a result. Teens now turn to one another, instead of their families, as their first line of support during times of worry or upset. This increased reliance on friendships is yet another way that teens demonstrate their growing independence.

Your response should include supporting evidence in the form of examples, statistics, or facts.
Access the student documents here.
Some warning signs of an unhealthy relationship can include dishonesty and lack of communication. If your significant other starts to be dishonest and secretive, that can be a warning sign. Your significant other should have nothing to hide from you, for you two are in a committed relationship. You are both supposed to share each other's secrets and count on one another. This can be one. A warning sign of a physically controlling relationship can be constantly asking what you are doing, where you are going and who you are talking to. SUre, it's okay to ask every now and then where you are going, especially if you live together, but you must accept that we all have things to do. We all have friends and family that we see, and we must appreciate that. A sexually controlling relationship can be forcing you to do something that you have said multiple times you weren't willing to do.
If you are in an abusive relationship be sure to say no when you feel like you should, and never apologize for doing so. Stay firm to your decision and call for a friend or relative to stay with. In the meantime, contact services to get your partner the help they need so they can stop their behavior. Always remember, it's not always your fault when your partner acts this way, it could be something internal or something wrong with them that they need to work on. Leaving and getting them the help they need will not only help them, but also any future people they may encounter.
