Why focus on knowing self-worth? It has been said that cyber connectivity essentially puts peer pressure on steroids, and this is also true for human exploitation in the cyber realm. As early as middle school, kids are exposed to money-making activities in their cyber social realms that exploit them by convincing them of things that are not true, and getting them to focus on things that don’t matter when it comes to sex and money. Internet porn, sextortion, sex trafficking and the intrusive manipulation of internet consumer advertising can be addressed by teaching children to know their worth as human beings, and how to put the role of money in their world into proper perspective.

You will learn:

  • The nature of sexual and commercial exploitation in the social network aimed at kids and communication strategies to prepare youth to respond in a healthy and responsible way when they encounter it.
  • To communicate the concepts about wealth and money as it relates to prospering or exploiting people.
  • Ways to communicate the spiritual origin of prosperity as an essential mindset to navigate the cyber social realm and how to educate your child accordingly.
  • The concepts of financial peace and mental health with respect to your own relationship with money, and tips to impart this wisdom to your child.
