This book is a must-have for ANYONE who cares about the safety and welfare of children in general - especially if you are a parent, relative, guardian, teacher, or are in any way shape or form responsible for a child. Ty Ritter has an incredible and fascinating background coupled with a very unique perspective into the minds of people who target and victimize children, and he's done this world a huge service by presenting in book form the most basic and critical ways you can protect the children in your care on a daily basis. I am baffled that this is the first time I've heard of this book - it has not recieved the publicity its due.

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!

The statistics in the book will, I think, shock most parents. More shocking than the statistics is the response of local and federal agencies when it comes to protecting our children. I believe this book is a must read for parents. It scared me, woke me up, and more importantly told what I need to do to keep my children as safe as possible.

I am not kidding that every parent needs a copy of this book. Although a little common sense goes a long way, in todays society we live in people are comfortable living in a "nanny state" and are not in touch with the realities that lurk around every corner. I knew most of the protections outlined in this book except for some of the on-line computer stuff but I can also fill a few more pages of things not mentioned. But all in all this book should be a great starting point for new parents or veteran parent to not only provide protection for their children but get involved in their communities and demand safer conditions for our children.

The book "My Body is My Own" is an absolute must-read for all parents (and non-parents as well). I simply cannot recommend this book ENOUGH.

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.

A true, horrifying guide to the world as it it, not as we think it is. Forget your rose colored glasses, if you really want your children to be safe don't just read it, live it! The author lives what he tells and is a hero even to those who don't know he exists. Advise and check lists for parents starting off, daycare, sending children to school...etc. if you are serious about protecting your children, this IS where you should start, with this book.
