Okay, I know I'm supposed to place part 2 right after part 1, but I just found this article today.
So, I'm going to cheat. Part 1 was posted a couple of weeks ago (see right rail, 2nd post under April for the link). The info in Lisa Bloom's article "How To Talk to Little Girl's" is a wonderful extension of those thoughts. And, her story and message are better than anything I could have come up with. Please take the time to read it and consider your own messages to girls of all ages.
Even if you don't want to be directly involved in eliminating human trafficking, if you practice what Bloom's teaching, you can make a difference. And, if you share this post with your Facebook friends--the difference you make will be even greater.
Would love to hear more ideas along the lines of how we can better help little girls develop into well-rounded human beings who think rightly about themselves. Communicating the truth about who they are is the best way to keep girls from being vulnerable to the lies of human traffickers. If you have some thoughts on the matter, please share them in the comments.
