Drawing upon her vast experience as a child sex crimes prosecutor in Los Angeles, Robin Sax delivers an insightful, detailed and most important book. Sax takes the reader inside the cunning and charming mindset of a sexual predator to reveal just how they manage to get past vigilant parents to their true prey the children. Further, Sax takes us by the hand and helps us see how to heal from the trauma of child sexual abuse." --Diane Dimond, investigative journalist, columnist, author of Be Careful Who You Love: Inside the Michael Jackson Case

Format: Paperback
While some say too scary, it's denial and under-responding that lead to abused children and wounds left unhealed (not to mention continuing the cycle of abuse). Robin Sax takes her smarts and her passion and arms parents with the consciousness needed to keep kids safe and to work together for a safer culture. This is a scary topic, but when parents carry the fear and anxiety with reasoned consciousness children are safe to just be kids and grow up safe and protected. This is an excellent and important book. Robin has dealt with the horror and turns around to use what she knows in the service of prevention. The best solution to this problem is that growing awareness, transparency and compassion conspire to keep kids safe. Educating ourselves empowers us to be part of the solution: this book does exactly that

I truly appreciate Robins Sax work. It is not an easy subject to write or to read about, but it is one of life's musts, especially to anyone who has children, or works with children. You will learn new information and other misconceptions about kids' safety. Knowledge is the best weapon-- make sure you use it well.

Every parent needs to read this book. It's the straight-up truth about the realities of childhood sexual abuse and how to safeguard our kids. Robin Sax writes from her experience as a prosecutor but also as a parent. It's an excellent resource that you will find yourself referring to again and again. The book's format of 100 Most Asked Questions and Answers makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for, and Robin covers everything a parent might think of. When you know the facts, you can protect your children. Highly recommending this one to parents and caregivers everywhere.

As the title of this review says, this book is excellent, written by an informed expert in the field of protecting children. It's a fast, efficient, straightforward read. You may think your child is always safe, that you will never send him or her into circumstances where they could be harmed, but I am psychotherapist. I will tell you crimes and disturbing boundary violations happen to children all the time, in many of the places we think they should be safe, by people who appear to by the nicest, most appropriate, caring individuals. Read this book, use the information, and pay attention.

This was a very informative book. A lot of the content I knew, but so many people don't know the signs. I've shared this book with all my sisters and my brother, that have children and grandchildren.

New parents and those just beginniong the process of informing themselves about child molesters should read this book. For those who already understand the sickness and evil of child molesters, it might be a bit basic and even shallow. But everyone has to start someplace on their journey to knowledge, and given the critical importance of protecting our children from these predators, this is a reasonable place to start.

As a 29-year law enforcement veteran with 21 years investigating child abuse cases, I can't recommend this book highly enough. Every parent, everyone who has contact with children needs to read this book. Robin has made a difficult and taboo subject easy for everyone to understand. She has removed the fears and hesitation that parents might have when considering whether or not to report child abuse. She spells out the difficulties in prosecuting these types of cases, but also shows the benefits of the process. Robin is an outstanding District Attorney, advocate for children and a great person. This is a difficult subject to deal with, but the knowledge you'll gain to help you protect children is invaluable.

Robin Sax's, "Predators and Child Molesters: What Every Parent Needs to Know to Keep Kids Safe" (Sax, 2009) is the most clear, concise, helpful, and comprehensive book on the subject readily available to the public that I have found. (I'm researching for a college term paper, so I've poured through a large stack of books) It was voted Book of the Year by the Amber Alert Registry for good reason. Robin covers everything from recognizing the symptoms of abuse to what to expect if it goes to court, and healing afterwards.
I wish this book had been available when I was raising kids in the 60's. It would have given me the gumption to report the guy next door, and something to show the mother who was in denial about a very scary neighbor.
Pass this book around to your friends, suggest it to your book club or the PTA, educate yourself.
I found it factual, low key, and full of information that most parents have never considered. (and a great help in my term paper.)
