5.0 out of 5 stars Good material for parents 6 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback
I would say to anyone looking at buying this book to disregard the previous reader's review. It's a strange review from someone who must be interested enough in the subject of keeping children safe to be reading these types of books. Yes, the very subject itself is grotesque. That is true, Karen. It is difficult to think about. However, unfortunately we don't live in Utopia: children can be sexually abused and usually teachers and parents do not spot it. This is born out by current statistics. To believe anything else is naivete. I also know this because I was abused as a child and my parents or teachers did not notice. As is also usual for people abused as children, I didn't disclose to anyone what had happened to me until I was an adult in my 30s. The abuse has blighted my life and has brought me close to ending my life on occasion. I'm recovering now through counselling, and I am determined to use anything in my power to protect my own young children from abuse and the abject misery that it brings. Books like this one can help to empower children to say no - to let childen know that it's OK to say no to an adult, if they don't feel happy with the situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teach Your Children 7 July 2005
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a book with a message that cannot be stressed enough. One major message that cannot be overemphasized is that abusers are NOT always strangers. Very young children are provided with tools of empowerment in this book and I like the direct way this serious topic of improper touching is addressed. While the illustrations are somewhat bland and lacking in color, that still does not detract from the book's main message.
I like the examples of unwelcome nonsexual touches such as enduring hugs and kisses from somebody the child either dislikes or does not know; unpleasant variations on "acceptable" touches, such as a hug that is too firm. Good or acceptable touch is explored, such as holding someone's hand and kissing someone you like/love. A good point about doctor examinations is given - although check ups are never pleasant, it is important to discuss with children why the doctor needs to examine every part of their bodies to ensure good health with no intention to hurt. That is a special case, but it still needs to be openly discussed.
Many children love to test out their new-found powers and in reading this to a group of young children and telling them to practice declaring refusal is very effective. It is also very empowering. Being loud with an abuser will undoubtedly get them to back off as predators do not want to attract attention to themselves.
The drawback is that it can be somewhat awkward to explain to a relative or other trusted adult such as a neighbor why your child refuses a hug and expresses dislike for it, but honoring the child's wishes is paramount. For example, there are numerous cases where children with autism find hugs too overwhelming because of sensory stimuli.
