Seduced: The Grooming of America's Teenagers

Author Opal Singleton talks about teens being "sextorted" along with the many other ways teens can fall victim to  human trafficking and it is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. Opal has recognized a disturbing trend. Each encounter with a stranger, every illicit photo represents an opportunity for exploitation. With advancing technology violence and sex can be portrayed in ways that parallel reality. The result is a generation of "Desensitized Teenagers". ... Parents give kids devices that open the door to over a million predators that can influence a child's thinking on morality, spirituality and sexuality while they are competing for approval in a fantasy world. Apps, social media and online gaming allow access, grooming, recruitment and exploitation of our young people by total strangers. This book is not just an internet safety program. It is a parent and grandparent empowerment tool.
