Today Annie Abram and her guest, David Trotter, will discuss sex trafficking in the US. There are "100,000 children in the sex trade in the United States each year. In the US, sex trafficking commonly occurs in online escort services, residential brothels, brothels disguised as massage businesses or spas, and in street prostitution. Victims are frequently lured by false promises of a lucrative job, stability, education, or a loving relationship. In the U.S., victims can be men or women, adults or children, foreign nationals or U.S. citizens. While they share the trait of vulnerability, victims have diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, varied levels of education, and may be documented or undocumented."

Develop relationships with people headed in the direction you are. Spend time with people doing things that line up with your goals. When your goals matters, relationships must matter. Teens, twenties, thirties, through retirement, relationships matter. People you relate well to are people who will come to know you well. You know what to expect and what not to expect from that person. That person know what to expect and what not to expect from you. We all need people in our lives who support us. We all need people in our lives who we support. Good strong, positive relationships will help you reach goals.

The truth about relationships is simply a question of which one you are working on. The relationship between a husband and wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or significant others is not the same as a relationship between a parent and child a teacher and a student or even a parent and one child. Learning to separate these relationships can go a very long way to not only better understanding them but also better understanding yourself.
Join us tonight as we discuss "Opening the Doors to Failure in Relationships."
"Just friends," side chicks, instigators... those individuals who add more unnecessary fuel to a fire that may already be blazing out of control in your relationship.
