Keeping Your Sanity in Times of Adversity
March 26, 2020
Hosted by Opal Singleton
Times of adversity can either make you or break you. Many people are currently being forced into isolation due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Others are laid off or are forced to work in difficult conditions at home. Most of us are concerned about our financial future as incomes are tentative and the stock market is wiping out many retirement funds. These are difficult times for young people. Most teens born after 2000 have not seen much adversity.They need your leadership more than ever, and they need solid, concrete steps to maintain stability in their lives. It is true that crisis accelerates bad guys. And right now, it also presents opportunity for your child to make poor decisions, act out in ways that are not healthy and take more chances on the internet. Help your child get a plan to take control of their lives and deal with adversity. Encourage them to put down the phone/tablet and verbalize what they are feeling.
EXPLOITED: Crimes Against Humanity
Thursday at 7 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
This program is designed to educate first responders, civic leaders, social workers, education professionals, faith based leaders and parents about how predators access, groom, recruit and exploit victims into prostitution and sextortion. We analyze real cases from the perspective of Law Enforcement, the victim, and the perpetrator. We look at hard core trafficking cases and how law enforcement is able to intervene. We examine cases of child pornography and the Dark Web. We examine how predators use apps, chatrooms, games and the latest technologies. We discuss the impact of gangs and cartels on human exploitation. We also look at trends in global human trafficking. Our goal is to build a global interactive community of individuals empowered to eradicate human exploitation. EXPLOITED: Crimes Against Humanity is broadcast live every Thursday at 7 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.
