In September 2006, Kaity Sudberry began her junior year at Moon Valley High School. Soon after starting the fall semester, Kaity met Daniel Byrd. They immediately became best friends, and as teen relationships do, the friendship quickly escalated into a romance. Over the next year, Daniel's affections turned possessive, and the story ends in every parent's worst nightmare.
On this episode of HNTRASK, Michelle invites her Aunt Margit on the podcast to discuss the perils and complexities of teen dating violence, and what parents of victims AND abusers can do to prevent this type of violence.
