Special Book Review

Hope for Families: "Let's Talk about Taking Care of You",
Lori Stauffer, Ph.D., and Esther Deblinger, Ph.D.

LETS TALK ABOUT TAKING CARE OF YOU Children are much smarter than people give them credit for. If parents and caregivers give children a chance to learn a little more about themselves and their bodies while they're young, they may grow up having a better sense of what's right and wrong, and possibly make better decisions for themselves as they grow.

The information contained in the book, "Let's Talk about Taking Care of You", by Lori Stauffer, Ph.D., and Esther Deblinger, Ph.D., is an ideal resource to help children learn and understand more about their own private barriers. SSO believes that the more we inform children about safety, the more they're armed with the "power of knowledge". Information alone may not protect a child against abuse, but it will arm them enough to possibly save them from a dangerous situation.

What's nice about this book, is that children will identify with the "child-like" images and large, easy-to-read text that is constant throughout the book. Not only are the words easy to understand, but they speak directly to the reader, pulling them into conversations by asking questions about their own life.

By reading this book with their parents, young children may discover feelings that they never knew existed, and they may be encouraged to discuss their thoughts or concerns, teaching them how to express those feelings. This will further open the lines of communication between parents and children, including children who have been abused.

SSO recommends "Let's Talk" to their visitors -- this book shows concern for children by explaining "okay" and "not okay" touches; teaches safety by giving children the permission to say "NO!"; and is easy to read and understand for both parent and child. It's a wonderful resource for anyone concerned about children's safety.
