I don't think you can see the book's contents on the Amazon page, so just to give you an idea, Mr. Ritter talks about his background in recovering kidnapped children - and this introductory information alone is pretty intense. He also discusses the profile of a predator, child sexual abuse, kidnappings, parental abduction, pedophiles on the internet, national registration of child molesters, safe apartment living, statistics, advocacy groups, and pending legislation.
I am so grateful that someone like Ty Ritter exists. Too often, people don't think about things like this unless something tragic has affected a child in their life. This is a book for people who actively choose to not keep their heads buried in the sand about the fact that this world is full of people who target and exploit and victimize children. Although it is full of information that is not for the faint-of-heart, it is by far the best book on child safety I have EVER come across.
As a survivor of sexual abuse, an aunt, a sister, and a professional childcare worker, I found this information so completely essential and practical. If you are even considering this purchase...don't hesitate! You will NOT be disappointed. It's impossible to put down once you start reading!
It scared the heck out of me and gave me nightmares, but that's a small price to pay compared to the torture, abuse and fear that perhaps millions of children are suffering through every day. This book literally changed my life - I woke up and started trying to combat this horrible problem instead of sitting around doing nothing.
