Katie Couric spoke out recently about Chris Brown’s alleged assault on pop singer Rihanna and said that now is the right time for parents to talk to their children about domestic abuse.
She says, "While it’s unfortunate that this personal drama is unfolding publicly, the incident is shining a spotlight on teen dating violence”.
"There’s an opportunity for a real conversation here. Talk to your children. Listen to how they feel about what happened and Rihanna’s decision to reconcile with Chris Brown. Ask them why they believe Brown’s record sales haven’t been affected. But most of all, remind them that love isn’t supposed to hurt … except when someone breaks your heart."
