Every year in the US:
3000 to 5000 children are abducted by people who are not family members.
More than 300,000 children are sexually abused.
1 in 5 youths receive a sexual approach or solicitation over the Internet.
Accidental gun shots account for 27% of all firearm deaths among children under 12.
Nationwide, 17.4% of high school students carry a weapon to school; 5.7% carry a gun.
As many as 1 in 10 children ages 6 through 12 experience depressive symptoms.
25% of all children suffer an injury severe enough to warrant medical attention or miss school.
Thousands of children develop infectious diseases that could be prevented by immunizations.
Unintentional injury remains the leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 21.
The new millennium brings the promise of a brighter future, but it also brings dangers that past generations couldn’t even fathom: Internet predators, abductions, dating violence, terrorist attacks on US soil, extreme weather, and school shootings. Today’s children face these perils, as well as the ongoing hazards created by vehicles, fire, water, poisons, drugs, stress and infectious diseases.
You can’t be with your children 24/7, so this book gives you the tools you need to protect them from these and other dangers. And it does so without your feeling the need to put him inside a bubble for the rest of his life – there’s a whole chapter dedicated to fear. Compiled from research, statistics, expert advice, and common sense, Not My Kid 2: Protecting Your Children from the 21 Threats of the 21st Century arose from the questions of parents across the country: How can I prevent my child from being abducted? How can I tell if my daughter has anorexia? My son just got his driver’s license, help! Just how prevalent is date rape and what can I do to protect my daughter? Which video games are bad for my kids?
The 21 Threats address the problems that most frequently cause injury to children, as well as those issues that create the most fear. Stranger abductions, for instance, are rare. But statistics are meaningless when it comes to your child, so you want to know how to protect her no matter what the numbers say – and this book tells you how.
In addition to the 21 Threats, this book provides bonus sections that give you tips for special circumstances, such as home alone kids and baby sitter safety, as well as extra tips for children with disabilities and rural kids, even though these terrific kids are addressed throughout the book. It also provides home and age-specific checklists and a chapter on disaster preparedness.
There’s everything you need to protect your children from the 21 threats, so that you can concentrate more time on the more positive and fun things in life!From the Author:
Yes, there’s plenty of information out there on how to keep your children safe, but do you really have the time to look for it all? Considering the amount of time it took to compile it for this book, I can guarantee the answer is no. So, keep this on the coffee table or near the phone or computer, since it also gives your plenty of resources to check out for more information. And let it help you do your best to keep your kids safe and secure.
