From the Inside Flap:

Successful programs across the country show children are more likely to listen to and learn from each other, particularly when the danger is real and can happen in their own backyards. Unlike any other book, Kids Helping Kids Break the Silence of Sexual Abuse uses this theory to reach out and touch all children in a powerful new way.

In each chapter, child victims show what sexual abuse is. They detail how they were manipulated into sexual activity and how blame and shame trapped them in silence. They tell how abuse changed their lives, how they broke the bonds of secrecy, and what they are doing to promote their own healing. When guided by a trusting adult, these true stories, followed by a brief narrative, will educate all kids about the dangers of sexual abuse. If kids are later approached, they will be empowered with effective safety strategies.

The book does not stop there – it destroys barriers. When kids are locked in silence, parents, teachers, and other professionals face a lengthy and difficult process to create the trust needed to penetrate the secrecy. This takes time that adults do not have when kids are in danger. But when trusting adults are able to show children that other kids have endured the same abuse, felt the same way, and survived, they establish credibility. This allows the children to be delivered to safety more quickly than ever before. The book helps provide exactly this kind of credibility.

If they have been victimized, children often bear the burden of guilt and shame. Through the true stories of brave children – children with whom all kids can easily relate – other child victims will come to understand that, regardless of the circumstances surrounding their abuse, it’s not their fault, they are not alone or different, and there is hope for healing. This important message will calm the fears that haunt abused children.

From the Back Cover:

Every day, millions of American children are in danger of sexual abuse. Author Linda Lee Foltz wrote Kids Helping Kids Break the Silence of Sexual Abuse to help stop the cycle and protect children everywhere. After healing from her own childhood sexual abuse, she wanted to make a difference and began volunteering at a child advocacy program. There she met hundreds of kids whose lives, like hers, were forever altered. She soon learned that children are more likely to listen to and learn from each other, which became the basis for her book. In their own words, victimized kids reveal valuable life lessons about living, loving and healing, and how to get safe and stay away from sexual abuse.
Kids Helping Kids addresses an important topic in an open
