Talking to Kids About Sexual Abuse - ABC News Interview

As many of you know, I prosecute child abuse and sex crimes in New York City and wrote a book to help parents talk to their children about child sex abuse prevention called My Body Belongs to Me. In the wake of the Penn State scandal, as a prevention specialist, it is difficult to watch Sandusky get so much air time and sit idly by as the media remains silent on the subject of prevention.  As such, I am sharing with my contacts, and asking them to share with theirs on Facebook, blogs, twitter, etc. an interview I did with ABC News several years ago.  It is called Talking to Kids About Sexual Abuse. I am also sharing a piece I wrote for Modern Mom called 10 Tips to Keep Children Safe from Sexual Abuse. 

I hope this information helps answer some of the many questions parents have.  Please feel free to reach out for me if you need anything.

All the best,

I'm not on She Writes much, but I wanted to let you know I posted your interview on facebook. I was molested by a much-beloved and trusted adult cousin when I was a young child, and I am very grateful for the work you do. We need more people to speak up for the children!!!
