The number one reason child sexual abuse victims don't tell is that they are afraid they won't be believed.

This book addresses the most often misunderstood piece in the puzzle of the sexual victimization of children, and that is acquaintance molestation. The Kid Trapper offers counselors, parents, teachers, and children a safe and non-threatening way to address this painful issue.

In a non-offensive manner, it takes the extremely sensitive issue of child-molestation and presents it in a way that gives the victim power and strength. Can be used to teach children and adults to recognize and prevent traps set by acquaintance molesters. It can also be used as a diagnostic and therapy tool helping to relieve blame and guilt for both child and parent. Includes the following:

  • Important statistics
  • How to spot a child molester
  • Traps often used by predators
  • What you would hear from a sexual predator
