City of Boston advises teens on how to break up

Dating advice for young people is coming from an unlikely source in Boston these days: the government.

The city's Public Health Commission is teaming up with a college to host its third annual "Break-Up Summit," bringing together more than 250 youths to talk about "engaging in healthy breakups and boundary setting" as part of a national program aimed at preventing dating violence.

Nationwide, the $18 million program known as Start Strong is aimed at teaching teens in 11 cities to prevent dating violence by ending relationships in a way that doesn't spark negative behavior.

Recent studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed about 10 percent of students nationwide reported a boyfriend or girlfriend had physically hurt them in the last year.
