Helping Kids Stand Against Online Exploitation
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.” – Melody Beattie
Over the past few weeks I have made presentations to thousands of high school students about how the internet works and how to stay safe from predators. I have shared with teens that pedophiles, pimps and predators are all looking for young people who are “available and vulnerable.”
One of my observations is how healthy so many of our young people are. Teens WANT to stay safe on the internet and they WANT to be leaders of their younger brothers and sisters. They just need someone like Million Kids to explain to them about how social media exploitation works and then equip them to soar in leading the next generation in a way that will keep everyone safe and ensure they are not groomed or recruited into sex trafficking or social media exploitation. That is why making a documentary is so critical.
A common denominator I have seen in healthy kids is GRATITUDE. Kids, who recognize their own value, are able to have confidence and belief in themselves and their worth. We talk about character. We discuss that every time you do what is right instead of what is easy, you develop character. It is that maturity, that sense of right and wrong, that gives a teenager the tools and strength to stand against online exploitation.
Join us Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com as host, Opal Singleton, talks about how raising up a young person with gratitude and appreciation of family, friends and life can make the difference in whether or not they will be an easy target for a predator. There is no such thing as a “safe app.” It is the character of the user that makes the difference.
