Dangers of Social Media
"If you've never been hated by your child, then you have never been a parent" -Bette Davis
One of the most significant problems facing teenagers today is the fact that many are not taught to be aware of the underlying threats posed by predators on the web. The dangers are real and dangerous for children everywhere. To name a few; cyberbullying, identity theft, sexual exploitation, child pornography, domestic violence and human trafficking! There is a disturbing trend of vulgarity, degradation, violence, manipulation, and bullying on the Internet. Many children are incapable of protecting themselves from violence and exploitation because they are just too young and naive. The essential factor in a child's life is a parent who is actively involved. You need a window into your child's online world, and my goal is to provide useful, tools, knowledge, and resources.
Porn is poison for the Eyes, the Brain, and the Soul!
Pornography has been described as a visual portrayal of sexual activity for sexual stimulation, usually through videos. Porn fuels sex trafficking, child pornography, exploitation, and sexual violence. It affects developing brains and shapes sexual behaviors for the rest of their lives. Pornography is not an innocent or harmless form of entertainment, in fact it is the foundation and the reason why girls are sexualized and sold like merchandise. The addiction to porn today is at epidemic levels and growing daily. Pornography is highly addictive and progressively perverted, leading to increasingly deviant behavior in many cases. In the past porn was somewhat limited to magazines and video, but with the Internet and social media, hardcore porn is available and free to all, including your children.
Stop the Demand!!
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000: Defines Human Trafficking as "the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel or subject an individual into providing labor services or commercial sex acts." Any minor under the age of 18 years old involved in commercial sex acts, is automatically deemed a victim of Human Trafficking. It is the fastest growing crime in America and around the world. Millions of woman and children are at risk globally, and in our own backyard; they are hidden from the general public as it thrives in secret.
California is one of the three states in the nation where human trafficking is very prominent. However, it affects every state in the country.
“One woman can change anything, but many women can change everything.” -Christine Karumba
Cyberbullying is the use of electronic technology like cell phones, computers, and tablets to bully people. It can be done through social-media sites, websites, text messages, chat rooms, and telephones. With the widespread use of social media, bullying has escalated. In some cases, the torture is so much that kids have resorted to suicide.
Cyberbullies don’t get into fist fights as the only way to hurt their victims. Instead, they use rumors, gossip, and exclusion to put others down. They also share secrets and create lies to humiliate and defeat other children. To the bullies, physical characteristics, intellect, weight, and athletic ability offer the perfect ground for insults and humiliation.
Bullying is an unwanted aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance with the potential to be repeated many times. When a child bullies another child it's not child’s play, but instead it is hurtful and can be intensely damaging.
Bullying is an abuse that drastically affects the victim and their family. Unfortunately, hurtful words and images travel quickly to more people today because of the Internet and social media.
Bullying destroys a child from the inside out because the body responds to stress by dumping cortisol into the bloodstream. The nervous system is continuously under duress; thus, many children end up experiencing PTSD.
Gaming can be very addictive, however in the United States it has not been officially recognized as a mental disorder. The American Psychiatric Association has suggested that this will probably change soon. Parents need to be very mindful of the addiction to gaming. It can cause many detrimental behaviors for your children affecting their lives in destructive ways.
Allowing your children to play with strangers puts them in a position of vulnerability and is very dangerous. Predators are masters of manipulation and coercion, especially when they appear as their gaming avatar. Pedophiles use gaming as a way to gain access to young children. Keep gaming at a limit and put safeguards in place to protect your children.
African Wildlife x MSA
In Africa, MSA is aligning with other NGO's to stop the poaching of elephants and rhinos for their tusks, which funds the barbaric weapons of war, which includes the horrific mutilations and murder that terrorizes families throughout the country. Poaching elephants is big money in many ways. The tusks are sold to fund many criminal activities including kidnapping and selling children for sex trafficking and the recruitment of child soldiers. It is just another tool they use to keep control and terrorize people.
These organizations, led by warlords all throughout Africa use the money from the animals tusks to fund the most horrific militia activity, which includes the slaughtering of innocent civilians.
The mission is to bring awareness to the slaughter of animals and stop the sale of the tusks to protect elephants and rhinos from extinction and to protect children.
This is a huge en devour and extremely dangerous, however with the grace of god, we can hopefully bring awareness and stop the barbaric treatment of innocent people and wildlife.
However, this can not be done alone, we need boots on the ground, and funding is desperately needed. Please be the change and donate.
With the Faith of a mustard seed, all things are possible for you!
