Guiding the reader through what constitutes age-appropriate and typical sexual development in children, Christiane Sanderson enables parents and teachers to recognize atypical sexual development and the warning signs of sexual abuse. The Seduction of Children presents practical strategies for the protection of children that all parents, teachers, and anyone involved in the life of a child will find indispensable.

Reviews and Endorsements

The more knowledgeable and comfortable teachers and parents themselves can be, the easier it is for them to understand and talk openly with children about sexual development. Christiane Sanderson suggests age-sensitive ways of discussing appropriate and inappropriate touching or behaviour, and the dangers of sexual abuse, with children. She includes information about abusers and tackles the many myths and misconceptions surrounding child sexual abuse. Advice is offered on how adults can protect against abusers' attempts to gain access to a child through grooming children, parents and other adults, including up-to-date information on the use of the Internet and mobile phones.

Armed with the accurate knowledge and practical guidance on child sexual abuse provided in this book, parents, teachers, and professionals will be able to confront the threat children may face and take practical steps to protect against it.
