Child Prostitution

Write an essay to answer all four (4) questions. Each of the four (4) questions should be answered in no less than 300-500 words each. Please utilize verifiable and renowned academic journals and/or books as sources (Do not cite other college papers or theses).

1. Before you starting this question, be sure to read the uploaded resource entitled: Alicias Story. Her story further illustrates the vulnerability of children on the Internet. Answer the following questions: In what ways are children at risk for abuse over the internet? What makes the Internet an ideal tool for perpetrators? What can be done to protect childrenagainst sexual abuse on the internet?

2. Child prostitution is considered by some to be an epidemic. Thousands of childrenare reported missing every year in this country alone, many of them falling into prostitution and sex rings. View the video entitled Fighting Prostitution in Atlanta (http://www.pbs.org/now/shows/422/index.html). Youll see many concepts involving children, an adult survivor and a corporate community that seems to be having a value conflict between free enterprise and child protection. How might a child become involved in prostitution? Based on your research and the video, describe the various ways children can get involved in prostitution. What are some of the dangers children face when involved? Compare boys and girls involvement: are there differences?

3. Psychological abuse remains the most difficult to define. Within our own culture, there are so many abusive words and gestures used everyday toward children that we may fail to recognize them. Have we become that complacent? In an effort to gain consensus on a definition, many theorists separate the definition into two parts: psychological abuse and psychological neglect. First, define each part and evaluate this approach. Do you think its useful? Does it help clarify? Does it add confusion? Next, propose your own definition of psychological abuse. How would you define it? Include in your discussion a generic profile of what someone could find with a psychologically maltreated child.

4. Consider that we are still asking: how can incest continue to exist in todays society? Part of the answer lies in our cultures preoccupation with sexuality. Advertising, greater emphasis on sexual performance, beauty pageants for 5 year old girls, etc., and at the same time, fewer rules for sexual behavior. First, compare and contract two different types of incestuous families (father-daughter; mother-son; father-son; mother-daughter.). Now, analyze your profiles in relation to the opening statement above: do you see any influences, connections between our cultures values today and the factors existing in incestuous families? Explain and support your answers.
