One of the main characteristics of my book titled “Father Figure – my mission to prevent child sexual abuse” is that it focuses on what a bystander might be able to do to protect children from possible risks of sexual abuse.

Most of the available books on the topic of child sexual abuse typically fall in one of the following categories:

  • Research based techniques for interviewing and treatment
  • Advice for parents
  • Understanding behavior of abused individuals

In addition, most of these books are written by folks who consider themselves to be “experts” in this field.

In contrast, my book has the following characteristics:

  • It’s written by an ordinary person and is meant for everyone concerned about child safety
  • It has advice for parents, but purely from a practical viewpoint
  • In addition to parents, it also has suggestions for many other groups in our society who need to be involved in protecting our children
  • It makes the point that we are all responsible for protecting the children in our society – an average bystander can and should step in if the opportunity presents itself
  • It focuses on several of our systems that are not always effective in a “preventive” mode
  • It provides a lot of useful information for an average person through a story that most people can identify with.
