What Makes a Person Vulnerable to Exploitation?

Million Kids has spent over ten years working with teens and parents who end up being exploited by an online predator or become victims of sex trafficking because they trusted the wrong person. Our team has often discussed the issue of what makes one person more susceptible to being violated or exploited than another. This show will explore the many factors related to vulnerability. 

The number one factor is the belief that you are “damaged goods.” We will explore the difference between “failing” and “being flawed.” Very often it is the desire to “fit in” to be accepted and sometimes it has to do with the desperate need for others to “take care of me.”  We will explore risk taking behaviors and how the desire to take short cuts and get quick fame and success or easy money that opens the door to exploitation.
