Parents are rightly disturbed and worried by the frequent media reports of sexual abuse of children. They want to protect their children, and yet they can also be wary of the risks of over-protection. So, what's a parent to do? Where is the sensible, middle-of-the-road strategy in protecting your child? What is too much cautious supervision, and what is not enough? What is too much sexual information, what is too little? Joanne Marie Greer has based this book on her own cumulative personal experiences as a teacher, parent, grandparent and psychologist as well as knowledge gained whilst working to prevent sexual abuse. Protecting your child from sexual abuse is a step-by-step guide which uses straightforward language. It aims to provide parents with background knowledge and suggestions for working out their own approach to preventing sexual exploitation of their child while bringing up a sexually responsive adult.
