If you have concerns about their partner, talk about it.
Educate your kid on how to be assertive and to communicate their desires and limits clearly and early on in a relationship.
Educate your son or daughter to never assume that any manner of dress or non-verbal behavior means a person feels the same way you do.
Help them learn how to identify how they feel and go with their gut feelings.
Help your kid develop skills that will aid them in paying attention to what is happening around them. Have your kid provide their own transportation when going out (don’t rely on the person your kid will be meeting) and help them to develop independence.
