Child sexual abuse and child pornography, as well as child abductions, are rampant in the United States— more than any other country . 10% of sexual abuse of children relates to what we know as ‘stranger danger.’ The statistics are frightening. 60% of those who sexually abuse children are known to the family; 30% (some believe this is a low estimate) of those who abuse children are family members. This book deals with the 70% of abusers who are either strangers or people known to family and how we can improve our skills in detecting them and in empowering our children to avoid abuse while promoting healing of those impacted by it. “Parents Preventing Abuse” will instruct and guide parents to mitigate the conditions that allow child sexual abuse and prevent abuse of their children. The book examines the context of the problem (myths and assumptions), sexual abuse prevention (parental example, interaction with children and vigilance about outside settings), intervention and resources.
