    Lifestyle NewsHow parents can help curb youth dating violence

    Children whose parents talk to them about non-violent ways of resolving conflict are less likely to physically or psychologically abuse their dating partners later, says a study. "Youths may be getting a mixture of both violent and non-violent solutions from their parents, but in our study it was those non-violent messages that really protected kids from perpetrating violence in their romantic relationships," said lead researcher Rachel Garthe from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US. For the study, published in the Journal of Adolescence, the team surveyed a random sample of more than 1,000 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in the US about their parents' views on handling conflict. The assessment included questions such as whether the child's parents condoned fighting as long as another person started it, or if their parents urged them to stay calm or walk away if another person said something disrespectful to them. The findings showed that the majority of the students - ranging from 82-88 per cent - reported receiving a mixture of parental messages that endorsed peaceful as well as aggressive means of handling disputes. In addition, the participants were asked if they had engaged in some forms of physical violence such as shoving their romantic partner and psychological aggression such as intentionally provoking jealousy in their boyfriend or girlfriend. As many as 35 to 45 per cent of the students indicated that they had committed at least one act of physical or psychological aggression against a boyfriend or girlfriend. The prevalence of dating violence among the students surveyed was high, said Garthe.

The winner will be revealed at a session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Buenos Aires in October, where this year's Youth Olympic Games will be taking place. Speaking in Nairobi on Saturday, Paul Tergat, President of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK), said it will be a great honour for Africa to host the prestigious competition. "The Youth Olympics Games are important in nurturing tomorrow's sporting stars and Africa will now prove it is capable of hosting the main Olympics soon. We support Senegal," Tergat said. The host country will be selected based on a report from the IOC Evaluation Commission, chaired by IOC Vice-President Ugur Erdener. IOC President Thomas Bach has backed the idea of Africa hosting the next edition of the Games after Buenos Aires. "It is time for Africa. Africa is the home of many successful and prominent Olympic athletes. Africa is a continent of youth.
