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.
