Internet Safety Tips and Resources

  • Build an atmosphere of trust within your family, and closely monitor your child's online activity

  • Establish strict rules around device usage and stick to them! You can always relax them if appropriate, but if you start too soft, there's no toughening up. (more resources below)

  • Use the most restrictive tools available (check with your internet and cell phone service providers). Turn on filtering technology. Manage screen time and set limits. Sex Trafficking 101 Quick Guide for Parents and Educators

Sex Trafficking Statistics

  • There are more people enslaved today than in any other time in history — including when slavery was legal.

  • In 2022, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) received more than 19,000 reports of child sex trafficking from all 50 U.S. States, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico which included every type of community: cities, small towns and tribal land.

  • Since 2000, traffickers have recruited 55% of sex trafficking victims online, usually through social media platforms, web-based messaging apps, online chat rooms, dating apps, classified advertisements, or job boards (Federal Human Trafficking Report, 2020)
