1). KNOW WHERE YOUR KIDS ARE AT ALL TIMES:

Image result for know where your child is

As a parent, grandparent or guardian, you may have varying degrees of apprehension about giving your child enough freedom necessary to grow up and become an adult. In today’s world, it is perfectly acceptable to have fears about your child’s safety, especially when it is nearly impossible to keep up with teens’ latest social media trends.

One thing is certain. Nearly all teens have a cell phone, and most teens cannot function without their cellphone on hand. According to a recent report released in March, 2013 by Harvard University entitled “Teens and Technology 2013” 78% of teens now have a cell phone, and almost half (47%) of those own smartphones. Cell phone tracking can help you locate your child’s lost cell phone, and can keep you notified of your child’s whereabouts at all times; especially in the event of an emergency. Most cell phone carriers have programs to assist parents with this task.
Parents or guardians have a right to know where their minor children are at all times, despite what your teen may argue. Major wireless service providers such as AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint offer “Family Locator” packages that allow you to locate and track all the cell phones on your plan. In addition, if your child’s phone has GPS capabilities (like an IPhone, Droid or Blackberry) you can download a tracking app directly from the phone. You can also down load apps to your child’s device that allows you to monitor all their activity(text, internet and downloaded apps). ITS OUR JOB AS PARENTS TO SNOOP IF YOU FEEL SOMETHING I’SNT RIGHT. Like I tell me children “That’s not an IPhone that’s my phone until you are of age.”.

2). KNOW WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE DOING ONLINE AT ALL TIMES AND TEACH YOU CHILD INTERNET SAFETY

Image result for snooping on your teen keeps them safe from human trafficker

ONLINE BEHAVIOR IN KIDS AND TEENS
The latest Harvard Research shows that nine in ten (93%) teens have a computer or have access to one at home. Although it may be hard to believe, tech savvy kids as young as five are now actively engaging in social media. Kids online are exploring various websites, emailing friends, chatting with friends through instant messenger and in chat rooms, sending each other pictures and videos, playing games together online, creating websites and web blogs, and searching YouTube for popular “viral” videos. Be sure to place any computer your younger child uses in a common area, so you can monitor what is happening. Pre-teens should never be allowed on chat sites without supervision. For older teens, parents should have the right to ask about browsing history and access to all passwords. When discussing social networking safety with your teen, encourage him or her to always use discretion when posting any type of photo, location, status, and message. Teens tend to over share information. They post questionable photos, give their locations and share personal information such as their cell phone numbers and home address. What seems like harmless chatter between friends can end up pinpointing your child’s location and regular behavior to a predator….. and before you know it, your child could be another child on a missing flyer”

Another way to keep tabs on your kids is to follow them on their social media sites. You may learn a lot about your child from how he or she communicates with peers. Teens should interact with only people they actually know. Allowing only people you know and trust as “friends” or “followers” is the best way to ensure safety when using social networking sites. Unfortunately, some teens are motivated by sheer volume in the number of “followers” or “online friends,” and fail to think about the dangers associated with a stranger having access to personal information such as photos and location. Drug dealers, Traffickers and predators are masterful at deception and commonly gain a teen’s trust online first, before meeting in person. Learning how to use Instagram, Snap chat, Facebook and the latest trends are becoming part of good parenting today. Everyone can learn how to use social media, just ask your child or grandchild to teach you!

“HE’S NOT WHO YOU THINK HE IS.”

Social networking sites make it very easy to pretend to be someone else. A Forbes article from 2012 reported that an estimated 83 Million Facebook profiles are fake. If Facebook has over 1 billion members, then nearly 1 in 13 of them is bogus. Traffickers are masterful at deception and ways to gain a teen’s trust online first, before ever setting up a face to face meeting. Location-based services can be one of the most dangerous features provided by social networking sites. When activated, it exposes the profile user’s location and whereabouts. Users can “check in” on Facebook to an exact location such as a restaurant or shopping center. Facebook also has a feature that allows users to tag who they are with at any given time. Predators can use this tool to track someone’s movements and determine when they are alone or easily met in person. In addition, teens must be taught to utilize privacy settings. There are multiple privacy settings that range from “open to everyone” to “open to friends of friends” or “friends only.”

The strictest level of security for teens using social media is “friends only” setting, and you as a parent should be a “friend’. Remember that IPhone is not an iPhone, its YOUR PHONE, if you teen throws a fit, you can take back your phone. There should be no exceptions to this rule. Either they follow the rules that are there to keep them safe, or they can have no social media at all.

3). TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND TEACH CHILDREN TO TRUST THEIR INSTINCTS.

With so much constant change in the internet space, the best way to equip children is to teach them to trust their own instincts. If something feels wrong, it probably is. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Children learn right from wrong at a very young age, and the internet must be added to their toolbox of life choices.

Slavery is a common topic taught in school, and most kids believe that slavery ended with the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, or three years later with the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment. Kids can relate to the concept of slaves having to work without pay and not having the freedom to escape the situation. This is a logical way to address the topic of commercial sexual exploitation. You can share the fact that there are more slaves today worldwide than at any other time in history.
The New York public school system has an excellent curriculum about modern day slavery: http://www.nyc.gov/html/ endht/downloads/pdf/sanctuary-nyc-2013.pdf

“STRANGER DANGER”

Image result for TALK TO YOUR CHILD STRANGER DANGER

Despite sensational media coverage, stranger abductions are extremely rare. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, only 115 children per year in this country are victims of “stereotypical” kidnappings, where a stranger takes a child to keep or harm him. Young children are less likely to be targeted by strangers than teenagers. Nevertheless, it is important to talk to your children about strangers, and above all, teach them to once again trust their own instincts. Children should never be left alone with unknown adults, and kids should always travel in groups, where there is safety in numbers. WHEN DO I START THE CONVERSATION? Human sexuality is not openly discussed in many American households, yet the topic is glaringly present in all aspects of media seen by kids and teens on a daily basis. These are difficult waters for a child to navigate alone. Most kids under the age of 10 are usually naïve about sexuality and have limited knowledge about sex, and even more limited understanding of rape or sexual exploitation. Human growth and development at school likely occurs during the 5th grade, when students range from ages 9-11. In girls, puberty usually starts around 11 years of age and in boys, puberty begins around 12 years of age. The normal onset of puberty ranges in girls from 9-16, while in boys it is 12-15.
It is best to have these conversations with your children after puberty has begun.
Pre-pubescent children lack the physical and mental maturity to understand changes in the human body that prepare them for sexual reproduction. It is important to understand that girls who mature early may begin sexual activity earlier than those who physically mature at a slower pace. Where students may learn about reproductive health at school, it is up to the family to teach their kids to feel good about how their bodies look and feel. Parents can teach children at a very young age about “GOOD touch and BAD TOUCH”. Children should be taught what kind of touch is acceptable, what to do if someone tries to hurt them, and that it is okay to talk about anything that makes them “feel” uncomfortable.Image result for TALK TO YOUR CHILD STRANGER DANGER

“What if?” questions are an opportunity to practice scenarios with your kids. Role playing is a powerful way to teach kids how to handle difficult situations. Act out with your child various situations at different familiar locations- sports practice, walking to a friend’s house, outdoor festivals, Halloween, at the mall, movie theater, etc. These “what would you do” conversations can take place at the dinner table or on the drive to school and may help ease apprehension about the topic. You will probably hear, “Oh mom, seriously?” In the end, it is better to upset your teen so that he or she thinks twice when potentially faced with a difficult Situation. Another way to begin conversation with your teen is to ask questions. When you ask questions, you show that you care about your kids’ health and safety.

4). KNOW THE WARNING SIGNS OF SEXUAL ABUSE IN YOUNGER CHILDREN AND RECOGNIZE THE WARNING SIGNS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION: Image result for TALK TO YOUR CHILD

Image result for TALK TO YOUR CHILDKNOW THE WARNING SIGNS Homeless, runaway/throwaway(as police refer to the,), and foster children are the most vulnerable population of kids at risk for sex trafficking. According to researchers out of Arizona State University’s Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention and Research, vulnerable girls may be recruited “into the life” by friends or over the internet. Pimps often act as a boyfriend. They might befriend a victim or require one of their current victims to befriend a new girl.

According to national statistics, most children who are trafficked have a history of sexual abuse from earlier in their childhood. According to research out of the University Of Pennsylvania School of Social Work, nationally, 75% of “teen prostitutes” were victims of earlier childhood sexual abuse.

5). Stay informed and up to date on the latest information, slang and/ codewords that dealers and children are using..

Know that by learning about the topic, you are making a difference. It is important to remember that no one chooses to be exploited. Exploiters use violence, threats, forced drug addictions and manipulation. Victims are controlled through beatings, isolation, starvation, and psychological abuse, threats against family or friends, rape, debt bondage and drug dependency. pimp/trafficker may appear like a relatively normal guy to a vulnerable are master manipulators and use tactics to create a trauma bond between him and the victim. Trafficking Victims are not always hidden in dark rooms, away from the public eye. They are transported from one place to another. They use public transportation. They suffer from injury and harm, they require medical care at hospitals and some are in domestic violence shelters.

SOME OF THE WARNING SIGNS: –

Highly controlled or restricted schedule, money or communications – –

Unexplained absences of days at a time –

Unexplained source of new clothing and
personal items –

Bruises or other physical signs of abuse – A tattoo that the young person is reluctant to explain (for instance, being “branded” with an exploiter’s name on the neck, chest or arms) –

Isolation from family, friends or other social networks –

Paranoia or lack of trust

Self-blame or feelings of humiliation or shame – Disassociation or lack of connection to the outside world

Malnourishment – Untreated health and dental problems

*****Human trafficking and drugs go hand in hand. Human traffickers commonly use drugs as a tool to lure and/or to gain control over their child victims prior to the child ever coming up missing. Below you will find a list of code words used for drug. Because no good seller is simply going to place an ad or send a text that says “I’ve got heroin and a child for sale! Come and get it! Here’s my phone number, email and address…”

Image result for ITS YOUR JOB TO SPY ON KID

All sellers use key words to identify their product. If you are looking for heroin, don’t limit yourself to just names for heroin; broaden your search to include all opiates. It’s not uncommon to see a string of keywords at the bottom of a seller’s post that reads something like this…

Black, tar, Roofing tar, chiva , yellows, norcos, dog food, H, chi, china white, horse, heroin, roxy shorts, roxy size 30, 30mgs, roxy blues, blue, oxy, oxycontin, opana, 80’s, Subs, BTH, Vicodin, Vics, painkillers, benxo’s, Xanax, valium, opiates, morphine, pain medicine.

For crystal meth, try words like, addy, Adderall, study buddy, tina (or gina and tina for GHB and meth), diet aid, weight loss, ice, crys, 30mgs, cady.Image result for ITS YOUR JOB TO SPY ON KID

Commonly used Back page and Craigslist Code words

420, Mary-Jane, VioletMarijuana

ABR/ANR – Should you come across an ad for ABR/ANR, shut your laptop and throw it into the sea. It stands for Adult Breastfeeding Relationship or Adult Nursing Relationship. Urgh.

Anything to do with a Craigslist massage or casual encounters – Under no circumstances should you sign up for a Craigslist massage. If they’re listed as DDF, it means they’re disease and drug free. But people on the internet lie. Like, a lot. Newsweek reported that Craigslist hookups were responsible for a 16% increase in cases of HIV.

Cranked – If somebody wishes to get cranked, it means they want to sample a rainbow of narcotics that will have them bouncing off the walls like demented fruit bats. Avoid.

Molly – Don’t meet Molly unless you’re trying to score MDMA.

Poppy – Also heroin.

Ski – They like skiing! You like skiing! A perfect road trip buddy for Aspen? No bueno. This one will snort the snow off the slopes. Skiing means cocaine. So does California Cornflakes. Don’t make brunch plans through the classified section.

Riding The H Train – The only train you’ll be riding is the one straight to jail if you meet up with this dope-slinging degenerate. H stands for heroin.

Rolls Royce – Don’t get your hopes up if an online suitor offers to take you out in their Rolls Royce. Their ride might really be the bus, but they’ll offer you ecstasy en route.

Roses, sugar, doe, $, help, tips – Cash money. More specifically, cash money that’s exchanged for sexual favors.

Tina – Tina is Molly’s meaner, uglier sister — AKA crystal methamphetamine.

Water Works/Wet Works – This means somebody wants to urinate on you, or they’re an assassin. Either way, it’s a bad scene.

Craigslist’s crew of artful dodgers are always inventing new codewords to creep around the authorities. By the time you read this list, it may already be outdated. But accidentally stumbling upon a drug racket is the least of your concerns when poking a toe into Craigslist’s cesspool.

One Google search will reveal a litany of Craigslist horror stories. Serial killings, beheadings, sex crimes, fetus murders … it’s a playbook of horror movie plotlines. But sometimes you can find good deals on slightly used furniture. What a dilemna! How do you stay safe on Craigslist?

Terms used in Human Trafficking

AutomaticA term denoting the victim’s “automatic” routine when her pimp is out of town, in jail, or otherwise not in direct contact with those he is prostituting. Victims are expected to comply with the rules and often do so out of fear of punishment or because they have been psychologically manipulated into a sense of loyalty or love. All money generated on “automatic” is turned over to the pimp. This money may be used to support his concession/phone account or to pay his bond if he’s in jail.

BottomA female appointed by the trafficker/pimp to supervise the others and report rule violations. Operating as his “right hand,” the Bottom may help instruct victims, collect money, book hotel rooms, post ads, or inflict punishments on other girls.

Branding — A tattoo or carving on a victim that indicates ownership by a trafficker/pimp/gang.

Brothel (a/k/a Cathouse or Whorehouse) — These establishments may be apartments, houses, trailers, or any facility where sex is sold on the premises. It could be in a rural area or nice neighborhood. Most brothels have security measures to prevent attacks by other criminals or provide a warning if law enforcement are nearby. The security is two sided–to keep the women and children in, as well as robbers out. The places often are guarded (and open) 24 hours a day, but some have closing times in which the victims are locked in from the outside. Victims may be kept in this location for extended periods of time, or rotated to other locations every few days.

Caught A Case — A term that refers to when a pimp or victim has been arrested and charged with a crime.

Choosing UpThe process by which a different pimp takes “ownership” of a victim. Victims are instructed to keep their eyes on the ground at all times. According to traditional pimping rules, when a victim makes eye contact with another pimp (accidentally or on purpose), she is choosing him to be her pimp. If the original pimp wants the victim back, he must pay a fee to the new pimp. When this occurs, he will force the victim to work harder to replace the money lost in transaction. (See Reckless Eyeballing)

CircuitA series of cities among which prostituted people are moved. One example would be the West Coast circuit of San Diego, Las Vegas, Portland, and the cities between. The term can also refer to a chain of states such as the “Minnesota pipeline” by which victims are moved through a series of locations from Minnesota to markets in New York.

DaddyThe term a pimp will often require his victim to call him.

DateThe exchange when prostitution takes place, or the activity of prostitution. A victim is said to be “with a date” or “dating.”

Escort ServiceAn organization, operating chiefly via cell phone and the internet, which sends a victim to a buyer’s location (an “outcall”) or arranges for the buyer to come to a house or apartment (an “in-call”); this may be the workplace of a single woman or a small brothel. Some escort services are networked with others and can assemble large numbers of women for parties and conventions.

Exit Fee — The money a pimp will demand from a victim who is thinking about trying to leave. It will be an exorbitant sum, to discourage her from leaving. Most pimps never let their victims leave freely.

Family/FolksThe term used to describe the other individuals under the control of the same pimp. He plays the role of father (or “Daddy”) while the group fulfills the need for a “family.”

Finesse Pimp/Romeo PimpOne who prides himself on controlling others primarily through psychological manip­ulation. Although he may shower his victims with affection and gifts (especially during the recruitment phase), the threat of violence is always present.

Gorilla (or Guerilla) PimpA pimp who controls his victims almost entirely through physical violence and force.

“John” (a/k/a Buyer or “Trick”)An individual who pays for or trades something of value for sexual acts.

Kiddie Stroll – An area known for prostitution that features younger victims.

Lot Lizard — Derogatory term for a person who is being prostituted at truck stops.

Madam — An older woman who manages a brothel, escort service or other prostitution establishment. She may work alone or in collaboration with other traffickers.

Out of Pocket — The phrase describing when a victim is not under control of a pimp but working on a pimp-controlled track, leaving her vulnerable to threats, harassment, and violence in order to make her “choose” a pimp. This may also refer to a victim who is disobeying the pimp’s rules.

Pimp Circle — When several pimps encircle a victim to intimidate through verbal and physical threats in order to discipline the victim or force her to choose up.

QuotaA set amount of money that a trafficking victim must make each night before she can come “home.” Quotas are often set between $300 and $2000. If the victim returns without meeting the quota, she is typically beaten and sent back out on the street to earn the rest. Quotas vary according to geographic region, local events, etc.

Reckless EyeballingA term which refers to the act of looking around instead of keeping your eyes on the ground. Eyeballing is against the rules and could lead an untrained victim to “choose up” by mistake.

RenegadeA person involved in prostitution without a pimp.

SeasoningA combination of psychological manipulation, intimidation, gang rape, sodomy, beatings, deprivation of food or sleep, isolation from friends or family and other sources of support, and threatening or holding hostage of a victim’s children. Seasoning is designed to break down a victim’s resistance and ensure compliance.

Squaring Up — Attempting to escape or exit prostitution.

StableA group of victims who are under the control of a single pimp.

The Game/The LifeThe subculture of prostitution, complete with rules, a hierarchy of authority, and language. Referring to the act of pimping as ‘the game’ gives the illusion that it can be a fun and easy way to make money, when the reality is much harsher. Women and girls will say they’ve been “in the life” if they’ve been involved in prostitution for a while.

Track (a/k/a Stroll or Blade)An area of town known for prostitution activity. This can be the area around a group of strip clubs and pornography stores, or a particular stretch of street.

Trade Up/Trade DownTo move a victim like merchandise between pimps. A pimp may trade one girl for another or trade with some exchange of money.

TrickCommitting an act of prostitution (verb), or the person buying it (noun). A victim is said to be “turning a trick” or “with a trick.”

Turn OutTo be forced into prostitution (verb) or a person newly involved in prostitution (noun).

Wifeys/Wife-in-Law/Sister WifeWhat women and girls under the control of the same pimp call each other. (See Family/Folks and Stable.)
