Predator-Proof Your Family Series - #1
Foreword by Dr. Melodie Bissell
Prevalence, effects and trends of child sexual abuse.
Sexual abuse of children is becoming epidemic in our society. While it has been an issue since the beginning of time, the factors surrounding and influencing it have changed radically with the digitization of society. Because of the long-lasting effects of child molestation and child sexual abuse on individuals – and the ripple effect on their families – we must understand the scope of this issue if we are to have any hope of making the world a safer place for our children.

In the time it took for Ward Cleaver and Fonzie to morph into Homer Simpson and his South Park neighbors, the fiber of humanity changed. Once-safe sidewalks, filled with active children, emptied into avenues where anxious parents now drive their children to school. We’ve been hit hard with a sudden onslaught of sexual child abuse and we have to deal with it. This isn’t television. This isn’t a video game. This is real life. We have to protect our little ones. The "Predator-Proof Your Family" series of eight booklets gives practical (hard earned) insight into how to protect children from child sexual abuse or molestation.
