For all the Good News we’ve been talking about, there are the harsh realities of communication in a pandemic and post-pandemic isolated world.  It’s been trying and hard enough for adults to get by in a world driven by too much social contact and too little real or face-to-face contact.  But the advantage of adulthood is life experience.  We’re less likely to comply with an unusual, uncomfortable or unfair request – mostly because of the once-a-baby-burned sensibility and boundaries of behavior we’ve built into our own character.  Children don’t have that.  Their experiences and character are still forming – some with parental guidance we provide.   

So what happens when predator (mostly older adults masquerading as a child peer to an unseeing, unsuspecting child on a social network) persuades the child looking for a friend to  “just take a picture and send it to me.   I’ll send you one of mine”.  The exchanges continue until the friend asks for a slightly naughtier picture.  And believing in having started a so called “friendship”, the child complies.  Only now the friend says, “Now I want you to send me this…and this…and this….And if you don’t, I’ll show what you’ve sent me to everyone you know!”  At that point, “Sextortion” has taken place.  Here to talk to us during “Internet Safety month” – seeking to raise safety awareness and providing resources to keep young people safe online – are two friends from Fayetteville’s Child Advocacy Center….Prevention and Volunteer Coordinator Faith Boehmer and new Executive Director (stepping into the big shoes of retiring Roberta Humphries) JayCee Landeros.  They’ll be mentioning a new film that will be showing twice in Fayetteville ON TUESDAY at 1pm and 6pm.  If you want to see it, you’ll want to make a reservation at CACFAYNC.ORG.  CACFAYNC.ORG.  Please listen.  (Interview) 

Thank You Fayetteville’s Child Advocacy Center. new Executive Director JayCee Landeros AND Prevention and Volunteer Coordinator Faith Boehmer.  The new film SEXTORTION shows twice in Fayetteville ON TUESDAY at 1pm and 6pm.  If you want to see it, make a reservation at CACFAYNC.ORG.  CACFAYNC.ORG.
