The editorial “Work remains on sex trafficking” [Opinion, Nov. 10] can be a vital part in the endeavors to decrease the number of exploited children in the sex trade. Many agencies and professionals were mentioned as necessary components.
I missed, however, the necessity of educating the children themselves. We teach them to be aware of traffic dangers, lighting matches and drug abuse. What preventive measures are in place in our schools and what help is given in our homes to give children the tools to handle exploitative situations?
