SMART PARENTING IN A GLOBAL DIGITAL WORLD

Parents (love them or hate them) are the most important factor in any child’s life. It is one of the few relationships that will last a lifetime whether the parent is engaged and attentive or removed from the family for decades. And, a parent will be one of the most important factors of a child’s self worth and identity. But, there are no instructions, no rule books, no tutorials, and few guidelines to be a successful parent. Teens and pre-teens today are the first generation in history that can communicate with individuals they have never met anywhere in the world.

So what are the factors that will define success for parenting in a global digital world?

  • Educate yourself on every app your child owns
  • Get a strategy agreed on by BOTH parents
  • Educate your child on how the apps work and who they are reaching
  • Understand if your child is using a closed chat room or talking to thousands on the internet
  • Talk about empathy and emotional connection
  • Always keep the lines of communications open in case they make a mistake
  • Set boundaries and enforce them
  • Encourage your child to be a leader and to use technology with respect and responsibility
  • Report any incidents of abuse to Internet Crimes Against Children (1-866-347-2423)

COMMERCIAL SEX: Who is Buying? Who is Selling?
Who is Profiting?

BASED ON REAL CASES. 

We often see documentaries on sex trafficking portraying the image of sex buyers as men who look like Richard Gere in his role in “Pretty Woman.” The pimps almost always look like they are high rolling men who wear furs and chains. And, the women are beautiful, smiling and excited to be selling their bodies in upscale establishments.These are stereotypes that are certainly entertaining, but mostly inaccurate.

Million Kids has worked to combat sex trafficking for over ten years and has been involved with many REAL cases working with the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force. We have conducted tens of thousands of hours of research and studied thousands of cases of sexual exploitation. We know that trafficking is a complex and diverse issue involving a broad range of ethnicity and demographics. 

Few commercial sex buyers are professional Caucasian men in suits. In fact, most are laborers of all ethnic backgrounds. In nearly 60% of sex trafficking cases, the recruitment and selling of the female victim is done by another woman. And, many of the victims are average looking young girls, who are desperately seeking someone to take care of them, and have little understanding of the path they are traveling on.

Help Bring IMMEDIATE AID to Victims of Sex Trafficking

youarenotalone

Immediate Aid Program For Victims of Sex Trafficking

Our Funds for the Immediate Aid Program are running dangerously low!

girl-in-motel-with-copWe have an URGENT NEED for financial resources for the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force Team to assist victims of sex trafficking in getting off the street so they can be transitioned into a safe house or safe haven.

Organizations and individuals have been donating funds to Million Kids for our Immediate Aid Program which helps us provide specific resources to the RCAHT Team, who are then able to purchase personal supplies and appropriate clothing for women and girls considering getting out of “the life.”

Sometimes these funds are used to provide immediate housing to help a victim have a hot bath, a safe nights sleep and then transition to long term assistance. This immediate aid empowers Million Kids/RCAHT to provide the exact resources victims of trafficking need at the critical point of their decision to change their lives.

Please donate today to help victims find the courage to make the change to transition to safety and freedom. To donate, go to: MillionKids.org

YOUR DONATION COULD LITERALLY SAVE A LIFE!

Contact us at: info@MillionKids.org or call (951) 323-0298 if you are interested in holding a fundraiser for this program.

AI-Crime-Solving

Artificial Intelligence:
How It Is Used to Solve Crimes of Child Sexual Exploitation 

(Part 2 of 2)

Every hour around the world technology is scraping, storing, sorting and manipulating your online photos, gathering your personal information, as well as your every search, click and location and storing your facial image. Get used to it. Privacy is dead. As my new book suggests: It is truly a “Societal Shift: A World Without Borders and a Home Without Walls.”   

Artificial intelligence gathers and sorts massive amounts of data and images and uses “artificial intelligence” to teach machines to use logic, make decisions and perform human-like tasks. Certainly, there is a down side to this as pimps, predators, pedophiles, gangs, cartels, and other organized criminals find new and innovative means to access and seduce our kids. 

But, there is an upside to this scenario. Law enforcement is learning to use creative approaches with AI to find predators, solve criminal cases, reach out to sex trafficking victims and send a cautionary message to potential sex buyers.

Artificial Intelligence:
The Impact on Child Sexual Exploitation

(Part 1 of 2)

For the next two weeks, host, Opal Singleton, will be talking about Artificial Intelligence and the impact it has on child sexual exploitation.

In Part 1 of this two part series, she will discuss all about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is utilized by technology developers to create apps and games that our kids use everyday. In Part 2, Opal will look at how technology companies are using Artificial Intelligence to solve crimes, identify sex buyers and pedophiles, and locate and rescue victims of child sexual abuse.

What is Artificial Intelligence? Basically AI empowers machines to learn from experience, analyze data inputs, and perform human-like tasks.  AI looks for patterns in data and draws conclusions based on that data. Programmers then analyze the data and conclusions and tests until it draws the right conclusion and then trains the machine to expand and use the same logic in similar situations. A common form of AI that most of you will be familiar with is Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa.

Artificial Intelligence is dependent on assimilating, categorizing, analyzing and storing a massive amount of data on individuals, physical locations, and numerical (financial) data, etc… The gathering of this data is taking place infinitesimally every day.

Google Maps drives by your house and stores the photo(s), address and physical information of your home. When your child uses Tik Tok to make a video, it is tied to their location, public profile, and mobile phone number. IBM scrapes public photos off the web by the millions. Apps and sites like Facebook, Amazon, and Instagram are  storing and selling your every click , search and location.

The real challenge here is that we are putting very young kids and teenagers in the world of Artificial Intelligence, and making them available to literally millions of strangers (some of whom are bad guys) and VERY LITTLE  is being done to educate them to help them understand the world in which they are living.  It is one of the greatest societal experiments of all time.

Global Social Technology and the Psychological Impact on a Child

Every day new technologies are being handed to our kids that will catapult them from the safety and sanctity of their own homes to becoming performers on the world stage. Much of this technology is encrypted or vaporware (disappearing video) which means the child is isolated from parental supervision resulting in the child being solely responsible for their decisions and behaviors. Advancing technologies mean that a pedophile no longer has to worm their way through the Instagram system and seduce your child, but, rather, on Tik Tok, your child freely performs before potentially millions of strangers, who can communicate with your child and know their profile information and geo location. 

Few of us understand the over-ranging impact of this Societal Shift. Global Social Technology will change our kids and how they perceive relationships. Gone are the days when you friended and unfriended. With mass audience live-streaming, our kids develop goals of having tens of thousands of followers where very few of them are “personal” friends. The challenge is that our kids are still using real-life relationship criteria to evaluate the integrity of the people they are communicating with. Teaching our children to transition between the cyber-fantasy world and real-life decision consequences may be one of the greatest challenges for this generation. 

Join us Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com as host, Opal Singleton, continues to explore the shifts and trends in teen technology and how this will affect them.

Societal Shift Trends: 
The Evolution of Teen Technology and Exploitation
 

This week we are going to look at how communication, relationships, and sexual exhibition has changed based on new technologies. For one-to-one conversations, it started with email then moved to texting. Facebook followed and we began to choose who would be our “friends” and “unfriended” the undesirables. Today, most teens would die of embarrassment using either email or Facebook. In fact, less than 5% of Facebook users are teenagers. 

Soon technology evolved into instant messaging apps such as Kik, WeChat, and WhatsApp. As these became the norm, apps like Line, Viber, and Skype offered free calling with video and group chat. Immediate interactions were accelerated on a global scale with Instagram, Facebook Messenger and Snapchat, all of which became enormously successful and popular with teens. 

All of these technologies changed how teens communicate. They formed online local communities with group chats. Even today many teens are using Tango, which has a four-mile geo-based function to talk with strangers near their home. It is a favorite of gangs in some communities. Whisper was an app that kids used to tell their secrets believing it is safer to tell strangers than to tell their own friends (go figure). 

Chat Roulette and Omegle, where kids can meet total strangers while sitting in their bedrooms unsupervised, brought mass audience individual live-streaming and video chat rooms. And, mobile device face-time technology literally tore down the walls of our homes while teens conducted the most intimate of acts at any time to be shared with any one.  

Finally, we encountered encrypted messaging, disappearing video, ghost apps, vaporware and the dark net. And, even more recently, we have mass-audience live-streaming apps such as Live.Me and Tik Tok where kids perform in front of potentially millions of strangers.  

Each of these apps has given pedophiles and predators access to groom, recruit and exploit our kids. THE WORLD HAS DRAMATICALLY SHIFTED IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS. All a pedophile has to do is sign up for the app and wait.
