Noted Child Advocate Carla St. Rose-Rein Offers Top Warning Signs That A Predator Might Be Targeting A Child

(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 02, 2006 ) Columbia, MD – Noted child advocate, Carla St. Rose-Rein, author of LAND OF BROKEN TOYS, issued a warning list for parents of top signs that an adult predator might be targeting a child. St. Rose-Rein says that in the United States, child predators often integrate themselves with single mothers as a way to get close to children. She says that this often happens more in middle class families than would be expected.The top warning signs that St. Rose-Rein wants single parents to be aware of and that should cause alarm when they are dating are:1. The need to meet & interact with children2. Adults who refer to child as a "friend"3. Adults who give gifts and money to the child and tells the child to keep it a secret4. Inappropriate contact, playing, wrestling, tickling, of the child for long periods of time5. Phone calls or emails that are directed to the child6. Invitations to events where parents are not welcomed7. Unusual amounts of personal attention being directed to the child8. Wanting "alone time" with the child“In society today, the number of families led by a single mother is on the rise and child predators target these families,” said St. Rose-Rein. “Child predators seek out single mothers on dating websites and other places for singles as a way to get close to a child. That is why it is so important to check a person’s background out before bringing them home to meet your children.”St. Rose-Rein has documented her own years of abuse as a child in a single parent family, in her critically acclaimed book, LAND OF BROKEN TOYS. She points out that a troubling statistic with child abuse is that often a single mother will not believe her child when they report the abuse for fear of losing the person that they are dating. Sexual predators prey upon the vulnerabilities of single mothers, she says and have become sophisticated in their ways of targeting single mothers. “Sexual abuse of children is on the rise,” said St. Rose-Rein. “We must all work together to prevent it. By using common sense in introducing strangers to children and being on the lookout for warning signs, we can prevent it.”Additional information on LAND OF BROKEN TOYS and Carla St. Rose-Rein may be obtained at www.landofbrokentoys.com.###

WHO rejects calls to move Olympics over Zika fears
28 May 2016 at 8:05pm

The World Health Organization has ruled out any change in timing or the location of the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, shunning a call by doctors and scientists to shift the event over the Zika virus. An open letter addressed to the global health body signed by 150 international doctors, scientists and researchers Friday had called for the August Games to be moved or delayed to help prevent the spread of Zika virus. Holding the Games in Rio, the second worst affected city in Brazil, would be "irresponsible" and "unethical" and could risk spreading the virus to "poor, as-yet unaffected places" like Africa and South Asia, said the letter.

PARIS (AP) ? Eight children and three adults were struck by lightning Saturday in a Paris park after a sudden spring storm sent a bolt crashing down upon a children's birthday party, a spokesman for Paris' fire service said.

28 May 2016 at 2:35pm

(Reuters) - The cost of replacing water lines in Flint, Michigan, has nearly doubled amid a health crisis from high lead levels in drinking water, the Detroit Free Press reported on Saturday. The average cost for replacing a service water line in Flint through a pilot project that ended this month was $7,500, the newspaper said. The figure is almost twice the $4,000 estimated by the state Department of Environmental Quality at the beginning of Flint's water crisis last fall.



Canada's Trudeau defends assisted suicide bill as deadline nears
28 May 2016 at 2:22pm

By Rod Nickel WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - A bill legalizing medically-assisted suicide in Canada strikes the right balance between defending fundamental freedoms and protecting against abuses, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Saturday, predicting confusion if it is not approved. The draft legislation, introduced by Trudeau's Liberal government in April, would allow people with incurable illnesses or disabilities to end their lives with a medical professional's help, but stopped short of extending the right to minors and the mentally ill. "There are people who think we should have gone further with this bill, there are people who think we already went too far," Trudeau told reporters at a Liberal convention in Winnipeg.


Djokovic urges wider concern over Zika
28 May 2016 at 2:06pm
By Pritha Sarkar PARIS (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic urged people to think about Brazilians who are having to live with the Zika outbreak on a daily basis rather than worrying about how the situation might affect those traveling to the country for the Rio Olympics in August. The World Health Organization (WHO) rejected a call on Saturday to move or postpone the Aug. 5-21 Rio Games over the outbreak after more than 100 leading scientists said new findings about Zika made it unethical for the Games to go ahead. The United Nations health agency said having the Games in Rio as planned would "not significantly alter" the spread of Zika, which is linked to serious birth defects.

28 May 2016 at 8:29am

By Kate Kelland and Health and Science Correspondent LONDON, (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) on Saturday rejected a call for the Rio Olympic Games to be moved or postponed due to the threat posed by a large outbreak of Zika virus in Brazil. "Based on the current assessment of Zika virus circulating in almost 60 countries globally and 39 in the Americas, there is no public health justification for postponing or cancelling the games," the WHO said in a statement. In a public letter posted online on Friday, around 150 leading public health experts, many of them bioethicists, said the risk of infection from the Zika virus was too high for the Games to go ahead safely.

28 May 2016 at 4:49am
By Asad Hashim ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan has banned advertisements for contraceptive products on television and radio over concern that they expose inquisitive children to the subject of sex, local media reported on Saturday. The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) said it was acting in response to complaints from parents and its ban covered all contraceptive, birth control and family planning products.
