WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Teenagers and preteens endure significant levels of different types of abuse in dating relationships -- particularly among those who become sexually active at a young age -- and most parents are unaware of what is going on in those relationships, a survey released Tuesday said.
It topped finalist entries from Florida (2), Michigan and Texas.
Sixty-two percent have friends who have been called stupid, worthless or ugly by their dates. Nearly half of those preteens or "tweens" who responded said they had been in a dating relationship.
Kinder Vision Founder Doug Sebastian, Miami Marlins Director of Community Relations Angela Smith and Jon Warden, Kinder Vision Director of Celebrity Relations also participated in the announcement.
Chosen from hundreds of entries from high schools in twenty-one States across the county as one of twenty-five area winners, chosen as one of ten national semi-finalists and one of five national finalists, this PSA carried the largest percentage of the national vote an also won the vote of more than 150 teens from fifteen States at Major League Baseball All-Star Fan Fest in Miami.
The survey considers tweens to be between 11 and 14 years of age.
Slightly more than two-thirds of parents surveyed believe they know "a lot" or "everything" about their tween's relationship, but only 51 percent of tweens agree, the survey said.
