Don’t hit snooze on this alarm.
Like many people, I have a snooze button on my alarm clock. I seldom use it. Perhaps just once or twice in 10 years. But I know that when I have hit it, I lay waiting, knowing that it will sound again.
Let me sound an alarm that I hope you will not “snooze” through.
Children are being targeted by human traffickers every minute of every day in the US. And they are using tools we as parents and grandparents have given them to use. Smartphones. The bait of entrapment.
Pay a kid $10 to friend you and then ask all his friends to friend his “new friend”. Because this second level of “friending” is from a familiar person, kids dive right in. False profiles, false enticements, kind words, and then…….. the request to meet somewhere seemingly innocent. Remember, the “target child” thinks they are meeting someone their own age. From their group of “friends”. Why not meet up at the mall, the soccer field, a concert (they offer free tickets)? It all seems so innocent.
But it is not. It is happening to our kids and grandkids right now and they are too innocent to realize the situation they are strolling into. Parents. Dont SNOOZE this one.
Don’t wait to have these discussions. Don’t wait until a friend goes missing. Prevent the atrocity.
Help us prevent the atrocity by raising awareness.
