Childproof America - Safeguarding Families Against Sex Trafficking
URGENT WARNING FOR PARENTS!!
 URGENT WARNING TO PARENTS! Childproof America is receiving daily calls from parents with children being pursued online through apps like Instagram and Snapchat. The online “friend” claims to be a peer from another state or country. The conversations start off slowly, building trust so the “target” becomes vulnerable and emotionally attached to the “peer”. Parents, these predators are experts at their craft and can get your kid to do things you have warned them about for years. The two goals these predators are working to achieve are           1. Getting your child to trust them enough to send them an inappropriate image of themselves. Once they have this, they can sell it on the black market or try to extort money from your child. They will threaten to make the image public if demands are not met. This is called Sextortion and is a MAJOR problem according to ICAC, Internet Crimes Against Children.                   2. They will ask your child to sneak out of the house to meet them to do XYZ.

The Family Guides Program 

  
Do you have a heart to serve others in crisis? The Family Guides Program is inspired by parents fighting on the front lines for their daughters, with little knowledge on how to navigate the turbulent waters of human trafficking.

Parents with children impacted by human trafficking are most always overwhelmed by the magnitude of information coming from law enforcement, organizations serving this population, family and friends. With the constant presence of stress and fear, it is extremely difficult to quickly maneuver through the maze of information knowing the decisions you make are critical to the safety of your child.

Childproof America empowers families in the battle against sex trafficking. Our mission is to educate, equip and support America’s parents in the protection and defense of their children, and improve the quality of aid to impacted families. As advocates, we provide legislative pathways for concerned Americans to enforce harsh penalties to those violating the innocence of our children.

We aim to have a community free of sex trafficking where evildoers know they are not welcome and our children are safe.
