a shame I didn't have Jan Wagner's parent handbook, Raising Safe Kids The
book's simple and non-fearful guidelines to child security can be a lifesaver
for your child."

"In law enforcement
I see what goes on: I worked the cases of the physical, sexual, and mental abuse
of children in my last position. Plus I have two daughters, ages two and four,
so Raising Safe Kids really hit home with me. I thought the book was very
well written and very down-to-earth. When you are dealing with a sensitive topic
like this you have to speak on a level parents can understand. Raising Safe
Kids covers a lot of issues parents don't know about or do not normally think
about and discuss with their children. Some parents live in a dream world thinking
'this is not going to happen to me,' so they do not take precautions. For example,
they let their child sleep over at a friend's house without checking out the family
first. The knowledge in Raising Safe Kids won't stop the predators, but
it can educate parents about the predators. I can tell that a lot of time and
effort went into researching and writing this book. It's filled with important
information, yet it's easy to read. I read the whole book in an hour and a half.
Since I'm busy with a career and family I don't have much time in my life; this
book is just the right size. It's the type of book you stay with till the end."

and reading Raising Safe Kids will be the most rewarding thing you could
ever do for your children."

"I am excited about what Raising
Safe Kids means for children. If the author could teach us personally she
would, but that's impractical and this book gives you time to read a little, put
it down and digest it, then pick it up again and read on. Because it is full of
information which a caring parent cannot afford to miss, every parent should finish
it to the end for the full impact and benefit."

from the Experts
"Raising Safe Kids
is sensitively and carefully compiled with compassionate parental and expert input.
It doesn't pander to fear, which can only exacerbate the problem of denial by
children and parents. Raising Safe Kids comes from a parent's heart through
an author's pen and accomplishes its goal, which is to better equip parents in
keeping their loved ones safer."

is exactly what we in the child abuse investigation arena have been trying to
say to parents for years. It is very important and useful information. Being a
member of any government agency our hands are tied by limited resources and we
cannot discuss with every parent these types of issues - Raising Safe Kids
says it all."

investigator, Charlotte, North Carolina
question, parents who educate themselves and their children with the basic safety
knowledge are empowered to act responsively rather than react helplessly to child
abuse and abduction. The knowledge in Raising Safe Kids should be in every

at my school and I can see me teaching to kids in my counseling advisory classes."
