    EXCERPT

    (CNSNews.com) - A curriculum dealing with dating abuse among teenagers was endorsed by two members of the U.S. Senate this week as a way to stop a "frightening and deadly cycle of children hurting children." However, the leader of a pro-family group called the program "a waste of school time" because it teaches teens to seek help from peers before turning to their parents.

    Teens don't need to be taught to seek help from peers before parents - they already do it.
    Part of growing up is achieving emotional separation from parents whether the parents like it or not. These aren't little kids here - people used to get married in late adolescence, particularly girls.
