Overcoming Toxic Parents

Posted by Sandra On November - 16 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

What is a toxic parent?

a2910569069_10Toxic means poisonous, noxious, contaminated. The phrase toxic parent was coined to describe parents whose own negative behaviour grossly inflicts emotional damage which contaminates their children’s sense of self. This means parents who abuse their children verbally, physically and/or sexually, as well as parents who are inadequate or ignore their children’s emotional needs. Sometimes these patterns are so established they continue into adulthood, and often are either not recognized or addressed. READ MORE HERE

VIDEO Series: Child Trafficking

Posted by Sandra On October - 3 - 2014 Comments Off

imagesHuman trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will.

Sex trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which individuals perform commercial sex through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. Minors under the age of 18 engaging in commercial sex are considered to be human trafficking, regardless of the use of force, fraud, or coercion. Sex traffickers frequently target victims and then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage, or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry for their own profit. Sex trafficking exists within diverse and unique sets of venues and business including fake massage businesses, escort services, residential brothels, in public on city streets and in truck stops, strip clubs, hostess clubs, hotels and motels, and elsewhere.
