It is quite alarming to note that one third of runaway youth will fall victim to sexual exploitation in Quebec! The process of entering into sexual exploitation can last a long time. Over this period, the youth’s vulnerability will be used to manipulate them into believing that they are in a loving relationship. At this age, teens can sometimes have trouble recognizing what constitutes a healthy relationship. As a parent, it’s important to be a model for your children. It is essential to remind them that respect, communication and equality are the base of all healthy relationships. Furthermore, by being present and showing our support, our child is more likely to come to us when in need. Even though our teen may want to make their own decisions, they will always need guidance and support from their parents!

reseauenfantsretour.ong/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Spotlight-on-Safety-Volume-29-Sexual-Exploitat...Il est alarmant de constater que l’exploitation sexuelle touche un tiers des jeunes fugueurs au Québec! Le processus d’entrée dans l’exploitation sexuelle peut s’étendre sur une longue période de temps à travers laquelle on profitera de la vulnérabilité de l’adolescent pour lui faire croire par plusieurs manigances qu’il est en relation amoureuse. Or, à cet âge, parfois les adolescents ont de la difficulté à reconnaître les composantes d’une relation saine. Comme parent, nous sommes l’exemple à montrer à notre enfant. Il est primordial de lui rappeler que le respect, la communication et l’égalité sont des éléments phares pour une relation harmonieuse. Puis, en témoignant notre présence et soutien, il pourra toujours nous consulter en cas de besoin. Même si notre adolescent souhaite prendre ses propres décisions, il a toujours besoin de conseils et d’écoute venant de ses parents!

As part of Runaway Prevention Month , our SHINE Coordinator and Maylissa Luby, intervention counsellor of our partnering organisation, La Sortie/The Way Out, held an important workshop with students at Perspectives I & II High School. The presentation allowed for open discussion regarding self-esteem, healthy relationships, setting limits and the reality of runaway youth and sexual exploitation. Students from Secondary 3, 4 and 5 were all very receptive and enjoyed the opportunity to talk freely and openly about very sensitive yet crucial topics.

Thank you Perspectives I & II High School for warmly welcoming us and for the opportunity to address issues that our teens are confronted with on a daily basis.Dans le contexte du mois de prévention des fugues, notre coordonnatrice du programme AIMER en partenariat avec Maylissa Luby, intervenante de l’organisme La Sortie/The Way Out ont tenu un atelier spécial pour les élèves des écoles secondaires Perspectives 1 et 2. La présentation a permis d’ouvrir la discussion sur l’estime de soi, les relations saines et la mise de limites. Ils ont aussi parlé de la réalité des fugues d’adolescents et de l’exploitation sexuelle. Les élèves de secondaire 3 à 5 étaient très réceptifs et ont apprécié d’avoir l’opportunité de parler ouvertement à propos de ces sujets importants et cruciaux.

Merci aux écoles secondaires Perspectives 1 et 2 pour leur accueil chaleureux et la belle opportunité d’aborder les problématiques auxquelles nos adolescents sont confrontés au quotidien.
