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.
