What I like about the book is it covers so many areas of the aspect of safety for kids...not only abuse but also bullying, strangers and emergencies.
It is all done in such a positive way, looking at how to prevent a lot of problems and also how to have better relationships with other people.
It is a very comprehensive guide that is easy to read and simple to implement.
I hope every adult who has a child in their life or who works with kids gets this book, reads it and helps kids everywhere be safer and happier!
I want to give this book more stars, but to be honest, I've just never been able to push myself to read it all the way through.
I find the approach quiet alarmist and fearful in places, even though clearly this is not the authors intent. An example is the authors approach to explaining rape to children (which she explains as "when somebody wants to control or hurt someone else") where as I would simply say "rape is when somebody has sex with someone else and they don't want to".
It's this deeply ingrained "emotion" that is through much of the book and although the author says she doesn't want us to be fearful of letting our children roam free, she clearly states that to do so would be crazy and negligent.
I wanted to give the book more stars because it is absolutely packed with information - it is a huge heavy book, full of activities, research and information. Worth the money. And it did prompt me to think about these issues. I like how the author encourages us to trust our gut - and to trust in our own knowledge of children and their individual level of maturity. But I personally don't have the same approach to childhood safety (or life in general) as this author, and I just don't see myself being able to use many of the routines and drills. Worth a conversation with friends though.
