A Parent’s Guide to Protecting Young Teens from Sexual Exploitation
As children near puberty and then move into their early teens, parents may worry about sexual abuse. This easy-to-read guide provides help in continuing discussions about personal safety, and it alerts parents to the issues of online predators, sexting and sexual exploitation, especially in what appear to be romances. It also provides practical advice for those who want to ensure that their kids are safe with the parents’ own friends or romantic partners.
Written by a psychologist who specializes in child sexual abuse, Safe Connections includes detailed lists of warning signs that an adolescent is being abused, or is becoming an abuser. It’s ideal for use in school safety curricula, or as a complement to existing programs.
Especially valuable for 10–15-year-olds
