Pink flags are the first signs to let us know something... isn’t quite right.
When something doesn’t feel right, it isn’t.
10 Pink Flags: You can recognize in schools, communities, and among friends
- A close friend becomes distant or changes behavior drastically – has an older boyfriend and is pulling away from their normal life at home or school.
- A child is repeatedly running away from home or staying away from home and not disclosing their whereabouts at night.
- A child has new and expensive items but not the normal monetary capacity to purchase them.
- A home or establishment has multiple and random persons frequenting the area for no particular reason or for a reason that doesn’t check out.
- Someone is asking for pictures on social media or through texting.
- A new friend takes particular interest in you or a friend by buying expensive items, being the “perfect” partner, or attempting to alienate you/your friend from loved ones.
- A person seems to have no say in their daily lives – they are controlled by an older friend/boyfriend who answers for them, makes their appointments, or controls their money and ownership.
- Someone asks you for a favor that makes you uncomfortable – having your picture taken or being videoed, touching someone else, or performing a sexual act for someone else.
- Someone threatens to show a picture or video of you or a friend.
- A friend is particularly tired during the day, distant, sad, or missing their normal daily routine.
