In today's episode, Kira and Deana talk about teaching kids to spot unsafe relationships. Learn what signs to look for if you suspect they are in an unsafe relationship and some resources that you and your children can use. Unsurprisingly, Deana has come up with a helpful acronym to help families remember what to look for and what to do if they see it.

"I think that's really important that just because we can find a way to dismiss it doesn't mean it didn't land harmfully on someone else." - Kira Dorrian

"You want to get away much sooner and disentangle yourself from something unsafe." - Deana Thayer
