REPAIR For Kids by Marjorie McKinnon is the one book every business and parent needs. This is a complete 8 by 10 colorful illustrated exercise book for children who have suffered the abuse cycle when they were a child. But also if more adults would buy this book and place it in their businesses for children to pick up and read would be the goal of every reader. When I was a child in the 1960’s, talking about this issue was not “allowed.” Today in the 21st century we have come such a long way to helping children with abuse. I love this book to help kids and encourage them to thrive in their caotic world. Every child deserve a change to change or get help and repair from the damage done by abusers. If a child were to pick this book up they might be able to recongize and help themserlves even if they choose not to talk about their perpetrator. I really wish this book was aviaiable to all children as it is the most comprehensive, honest and illustrative book to help children recover from sexual abuse, or other types of abuse. I was gifted this book to help myself as an adult deal with my past issues of abuse. © 2016 Jackie Paulson

I have to say the cover kind of threw me off, it is very childish. But, like it has been said "Never judge a book by it's cover". This books is amazing for children of all ages who have suffered this kind of abuse. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I wish I had this book in my early and late teens when self-doubt and hate plagued me.
The book isn't simply something for the child to read, it's workbook. They can keep it can review it later when bad feeling's come back. I would defiantly recommenced this book, if for some bad reason I knew a child who was or had gone through one of these situation.

An American Authors Association review:

This is a much needed book for children who have been sexually abused. With delightful illustrations and a simply guided tour, this can be used by an older child by himself or under the guidance of a family members or adult friend. (There are instructions for an adult who uses the book to help a child.)

The author has set up a six-stage program which she identifies this way:
Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insights and Rhythm. There are work sheets for the child to use in learning about their feelings, building self-esteem and optimism, learning the difference between healthy and unhealthy messages, learning skills to soothe the inner-child, how to reveal inner feelings through drawing, breaking free from false shame, cultivating self-care skills and practices, learning about boundaries and bodies, and how to return to the natural rhythm and flow of life.

The author has used simple terms and created easy tools to help any child work through the devastation of sexual abuse.

Highly recommended.

I don't usually write reviews but I needed to do so for those parents out there who are looking for a book to help their child recover from abuse. I bought this book for my son who is 8 who unfortunately had a 15 year old family member touch him inappropriately over the Christmas holiday. I am working with him and this book is a great tool to help him understand that he didn't do anything wrong and that it's not his fault. We also take the book to his counseling sessions so if he is not opening up for the social worker, the social worker can see what we have uncovered while we were working together on the book. Excellent...highly recommended.

Repair for Kids: A Children’s Program for Recovery from Incest and Childhood Sex Abuse: Marjorie McKinnon author: Illustrator: Tom W. McKinnon

Many children and young adults endure the stigma of being abused by a friend, family member, neighbor, educator or clergyman. All too often they hide their feelings, keep the secret of what happened locked inside hoping that no one will ever find out and promising the perpetrator they would never tell. But, what happens when the floodgates spill over and the truth behind what happened to these children is revealed? What happens when secrets, lies and betrayals become realities and the child decides to come forward? Will anyone believe them? Will they understand or will they be shunned, cast aside and accused of not telling the truth? Repair for Kids is a resource that can be implemented by parents, guidance counselors, psychologists and medical personal qualified to handle these types of situations. The introduction on page 2 leads the way for parents and adults with how to use this resource and beginning helping the child. Repair: Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insight, Rhythm: when defined in more detail we learn that R-ecognition means telling the truth about what happened, E-ntry: making a commitment to work on the program regularly. P-rocess: learning the tools and exercises to make us feel better. A-wareness: finding the puzzle pieces. I-nsight: putting the picture together so we can see that it was not our FAULT in any way.
R-htyhm: Becoming our own person, SPECIAL AND WHOLE. The first question that has to be answered is: DO WE WANT TO BECOME REPAIRED????

As the author continues she defines the word Repair to mean: to put back into good condition after damage.
