Punishing Parents [electronic resource]: Who Is Responsible for Delinquent Kids?

In the eyes of the law, how wide are the parameters of parental responsibility? And how aware are parents and teachers of what goes on when they are not around? In this program, ABC News correspondent John Stossel gathers opinions in the heated debate over accountability for a child's delinquent actions by talking with parents, children, survivors, and the judges who are handing down rulings on where exactly to place the blame. Suits against parents for alleged criminal negligence in cases of school shootings, underage drinking and drug use, DWI-related deaths involving minors, and acts of vandalism are addressed. Indecent behavior on and off school grounds is also discussed.

Modern Slavery [electronic resource]: Captive Servants and Child Prostitution

House slavery-the confinement and coercion of unpaid domestic servants-occurs far more frequently across Europe and the United States than most people realize. Even more alarming is the widespread use of children as fodder for prostitution rings around the world. This program profiles a Moroccan-born former house slave named Rania, whose father, believing she would be educated and cared for, allowed her to be taken to France at the age of eight. Viewers also meet Sino and La Thiya, Cambodian victims of Southeast Asia's rampant child sex industry. Both case studies are chilling in their accounts of deception and exploitation, yet they also convey the possibility of personal transcendence and justice.

Modern Slavery [electronic resource]: Debt Bondage and Child Soldiers

Indentured servitude, however dehumanizing, played a role in the colonization and development of early America. But its 21st-century incarnation, the practice of debt bondage, contributes virtually nothing to the common good of southern Asia. This program examines the plight of workers in India's rural areas, exposing the conditions in which they toil to pay off staggering personal debts. More tragic still are the ranks of child soldiers forced to fight in African militias and armies. Viewers meet Moses, who was kidnapped as a boy and absorbed into Uganda's LRA insurgency. The film shows him going through the process of shedding his soldier's ways, rejoining his family, and trying to reclaim his life.

Modern Slavery [electronic resource]: Human Trafficking

In search of a better life, Natasha and Galia Gutu thought they had found fulfilling jobs in Turkey through their seemingly helpful neighbors. But when the Gutu sisters left their home in Moldova they were actually traveling into a nightmare-not the health aide employment that their "friends" had promised, but rather enslavement as prostitutes. This program follows their story by recording their own painful accounts, a different side of the narrative as told by the mother-daughter pair who led them into deception, and the real-life courtroom drama that unfolds when the sisters bring charges against their former neighbors. Will a guilty verdict start Natasha and Galia on the road to healing?

The Worst Offenders [electronic resource]: Can They Change?

Those who prey upon children for sex have committed crimes so abhorrent that most of us would like to lock them away for life. But in some cases, an offender can be rehabilitated-and, in the process, provide insight into the predator's mind. This program goes inside a pedophile's distorted thought patterns while showing how expert psychological treatment, combined with blunt feedback from fellow offenders, can help bring such criminals out of denial and curb their deviant behavior. Following a professional actor who, using real criminal profiles, takes on the psyche of a child sex offender, the film examines Rolleston Prison's groundbreaking Kia Marama rehabilitation unit in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Cambodia [electronic resource]: The Virginity Trade

Some Asian traditions hold that sex with a virgin will bring a man good luck and health. Tragically, the custom is far from moribund-in the dark world of Southeast Asian prostitution there is a growing demand for younger and younger companions.

Viewers meet teenage girls who entered the trade as high-priced virgins-some under coercion, others to support their families, all ending up trapped in slavery.
