Format: Paperback
I wish this book had been given to me the first time we started to uncover this mystery with my 4 1/2 year old daughter. Once we entered the "system" the experts seem to forget that the parents are starting at "ground zero" and have a lot to learn. Even after begining counceling, working with Children Services etc... there were so many unanswered questions and our personal struggle with denial - ("it can't be what she is describing".) This booked helped me so much, expecially the list of "signs". Thanks to this book, we were finally able to understand that many of the behaviors that our daughter was showing at the time stemed from her trauma, and helped us move through the process of healing. PLEASE READ THIS BOOK if you are going through this with your child. The most important aspects of the book for me were 1) the list of "signs" 2) reassurance that children don't usually make these stories up unless it was real and 3) that children don't tell the complete story at first - so they don't hurt the parents / and their own fear. Which is why it is so important to listen to your child and give them the love and assurance they need. ( and take the information your child is telling you seriously) In the end - this book helped us put most of the pieces together and helped more than the councelors to bring "peace" to us as we moved through the healing process, and reassured us that what we were feeling and the family process were actually normal. (and we were not alone)

Format: Paperback
I was unprepared to hear my 5 yr. old disclose that our neighbor had molested her. The Sheriff's department focused on her and as a parent I needed to understand what to do for her and for me. This book helps teach you how to respond to your child when they disclose. With so many children being molested, the likelihood is greater than you think. If you are not prepared, your emotions get in the way of supporting your child when they need it most. If I'd have read this book before, I would have responded differently. I recommend reading it even if your child hasn't been molested.....yet.

I wish that I had already had this book on my shelf. It would have helped us during the days of, "What are we supposed to do? How can we support our child?" Brohl does a good job of explaining the process of what goes on in a child's head and body during an abusive situation and she goes into enough detail of the legal process to be helpful. Each case is very different, so it's not a road map of how your case will end up. I LOVED THE CHECKLISTS scattered throughout - they were simple, useful tools when your brain is so full of other details.

I found this book to be extremely useful in helping parents deal with the victimization of their child. I give one to each family whose child has been sexually abused as a resource when they come to our Child Advocacy Center.

bought for a parents support book club for parents effected by their child being abused. This was very nice to have. Would have been better earlier on. I wish there were more supports out there for parents.

This read like a Steven King horror book to me. It helped me understand that what happened to my kid is both a) more common than I had any idea and b) there are a lot worse cases than my kid. I found out that I was doing a few things wrong, which was the point of reading it. Now I have a clearer picture of what I need to do to heal and move on.
