Dating: positive values for today's students

This recent Federation survey revealed young people's values concerning relationships. Knowing oneself and understanding others with empathy and intuition are all important for building good relationships and the careful handling of arguments according to respondents.

An underlying need for guidance on relationships and sex education was also among the findings and adult participants reminded parents and teachers not to shy away from talking to youngsters about relationships. HKFYG encourages the adoption of sex education as part of the regular curriculum with a focus on valuing interpersonal relationships.

Other main findings
  ● 30.1% currently had a partner or had in the past before the age of 15
  ● 85.4% stressed knowing how to handle one's own and one's partners emotions 
  ● 83% said respecting partners' uniqueness and not trying to change them was vital
  ● 55% had argued with partners at least once a month
  ● 50.6 % hid how they felt when breaking up
