I watched Dr. Phil Show last week and yesterday.He discussed bullying and preditors on the internet. This is so important to be discussed and I applaud him for bringing it out into the open.
Yesterday he had a girl who is now eighteen and had started having sex at 12 and was a prostitute at age fourteen. It touched me so much. She stated how she was “looking for love from a man.”
How I wish she would have looked at eternal love. The love only Jesus can bring. How I wish she felt loved by her father and had friends who loved her for the wonderful person she is.
Luckily she is on the right track now and has completed her GED. She has a legitimate job and has her own apartment. She explained how much better she feels and will never go back to the other lifestyle.
How can we teach children that all people are sacred? How can we teach them that their actions of bullying and being taken advantage of preditors is extremely self distructive and affects them and people who love them, and preditors do NOT give the love they crave? I don’t know. Maybe that is a topic we at AC can discuss. Any ideas?
