Stalking is not something that happens late in life. Stalking starts early. In fact, according to the CDC, nearly 54% of female victims and 41% of male victims experienced stalking before the age of 25. The Delta Future Program focuses on teen pregnancy prevention and other issues that arise due to sexual activities and relationships. Parents, talk to your children and ensure they understand what stalking is, how to identify the signs and how to stop it. Stalking is not okay, and it's not safe!
