Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4 Up-Young people and adults who were victims of sexual abuse as children tell their powerful stories, exposing the manipulation and shame that trapped and silenced them. They detail the personal and emotional effects of their abuse, and relate how they found help and started toward recovery. Some come from intact families; some from the foster-care system. Some were abused by strangers, others by family members. Some are boys, and some are girls. Their stories are presented without salacious detail, but with straightforward honesty. Foltz follows each individual's account with a brief commentary. She points out common elements of abuse and consistently counsels against remaining silent. Children are urged to find a trusted adult who believes them. Cynthia MacGregor's Stranger Danger, Staying Safe by Saying No, and Staying Safe at Home and On-Line (all Rosen, 1999) cover similar ground in a more instructional manner, without the emphasis on first-person narrative that gives Kids Helping Kids its unique edge.

Format: Paperback
This book provides extensive practical advice for kids AND adults on how to deal with a very difficult subject. It has tremendous healing power for those who have been vicitimized, but it is an equally powerful tool for learning how to protect kids from this horrible fate in the first place. A must read for anyone with children or anyone who is responsible for children on a regular or even semi-regular basis.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S. L. Brody on March 27, 2003
Format: Hardcover
When I read "Kids," I thought "This book should be read by every parent, every educator and should be a part of every home and public library; it should be in every school and in every recovery or help center." "Kids" is packed with power. The power to help, the power to heal and the power to teach.
This wonderful book serves as a tool to help children who have experienced sexual abuse recover; to feel good about themselves and to teach children that that they are NOT at fault and NOT alone when they have become victimized by sexual abuse. "Kids" may be read by young adults or by children when guided by a parent, a therapist or educator.
"Kids" is also a powerful educational and PREVENTATIVE tool which parents and educators worldwide should use when teaching children about sexual abuse prevention.
Read "Kids" as a recovery tool or as a preventative tool. I know of no other book on sexual abuse that can be utilized in this broad spectrum. Powerful, thought provoking and essential.
Ms. Foltz is sure to reach and help millions of people with her work.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book as part of my training to be a child advocate. I found it interesting, well written, and informative. I highly recomend it for anyone working in the field, and for parents who have delt or are dealing with a child suffering from sexual abuse. Many of the stories explain why seemingly unrelated behaviors often accompany sexual abuse.

My only problem with this book is that it is intended to be read by other teens suffering from abuse themselves. I understand the point of knowing they're not alone, but it seems like an awful lot to dump onto a survivor of abuse. Maybe, as their caring adult, pick out a chapter or two for them to read, and then discuss it with them. There is so much horror in this book I'm afraid it would simply add to the trauma of your child. I love the "what I wish parents knew/what I want to say to kids" parts at the end o each chapter.

I really like the layout of this book. The author breaks it into sections by child and topic. They are short stories of abuse and survival that get right to the point and don't dwell on the misery. Very uplifting and powerful. i gave this to a teen client who was reluctant to read it and after i read one story, she changed her mind and took the book!
