PROTECT YOUR KIDS & COMMUNITY

THE KEY TO SUCCESS IS TO BE INVOLVED


The best way to protect your child is to pay attention to them and their behavior.

Here are s suggestions to be informed and proactive

Know the patterns of Traffickers

 Victims can be from any ethnicity, social or economic group, gender, or level of academic achievement.   WHO?Some traffickers prefer to focus their efforts on recruiting young people into their enterprises, as most traffickers are young as well.Traffickers are looking for young people who may:

  • Lack a sense of belonging to others
  • Not feel respected or valued by family or friends
  • Base their self-worth on popularity or relationships
  • Be willing to keep secrets, including the relationship
  • Not have a good relationship with their parents
  • Be looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend
  • Be often bored with not much to do
  • Spend a lot of time away from family or friends
  • Be willing to take directions and believe the lies and false promises

ONCE A TEEN IS TARGETED THE PROCESS BEGINS

Do you suspect your child is being scouted or manipulated?

Keep an open dialogue and conversation going.

  • Tell me about your friends.
  • Who do you hang out with during your free time?
  • Have you received any strange friend requests or followers on social media?
  • Have you received texts or private messages asking you to meet?
  • Did your friend ask you to keep your friendship a secret?
  • Do you feel like you have to spend all of your free time with this friend?
  • Has your friend bought you expensive gifts for no reason?
  • How old is your friend?
  • Has your friend tried to give you drugs or alcohol?
  • Has your friend tried to get you to participate in illegal or questionable activities?
  • Has your friend asked you to be sexually active with them or another person in exchange for money, clothes, or something else you want?
  • Do you feel like you have to check-in with your friend?
  • Has your friend every hit, kicked, shoved or hurt you?
  • Has your friend threatened to hurt you if you try to leave?
  • Are you afraid to end the relationship with this friend?
  • Does your friend make you feel uncomfortable?

LISTEN

 Let your teen share what’s bothering them. 

Don’t force the issue. Listen, but be persistent. 

LOVE

 Tell your teen that you love them, and tell them often.

Tell them you’ll always be there for them. 

SUPPORT

 Show your teen you are willing to listen, 

and try not to judge them when they share. 

UNDERSTAND

 Never blame your teen for what is happening. 

Remember they are a victim, not a criminal. 

Customers have questions, you have answers. Display the most frequently asked questions, so everybody benefits.
