This frank study authoritatively and objectively examines the heinous crime of child sexual abuse, explaining how, far from being the stereotypical “dirty old man” or pedophile, many child molesters aren’t so easy to detect. Without resorting to scare tactics or jargon, abuse prevention expert Sandy Wurtele describes how community members and extended family members might groom a child for abuse, gradually increasing the inappropriateness of physical contact. The straightforward information provided in this book will help parents increase their awareness of such grooming and discuss it with children.

Though children grow older, concerns about the danger of sexual abuse may persist for some parents. This accessible manual provides help in continuing discussions about personal safety with preteens and teens, and it alerts parents to the issues of online predators, sexting, and sexual exploitation—especially in what appear to be romantic relationships. It also provides practical advice for those who want to ensure that their children are safe with the parents’ own friends or romantic partners. Safe Connections, with its detailed lists of warning signs that an adolescent is being abused or is becoming an abuser, is ideal for use in school safety curricula.
