Out of Harm’s Way
A Parent’s Guide to Protecting Young Children from Sexual Abuse
“Dirty old men” and pedophiles are what many parents worry about when they think of child sexual abuse, but this straightforward, easy-to-read guide by abuse prevention expert Sandy Wurtele makes it clear that molesters aren’t so easy to detect.
Praised by parents and professionals alike for its authoritative and objective look at a heinous crime, Out of Harm’s Way can be used at home and in school, or as a complement to existing school safety curricula. It describes how community members and extended family members might groom a child for abuse, gradually increasing the inappropriateness of physical contacts. How to watch for such grooming, and how to discuss it with children are among the most important points in this book.
