PARENTS HEAR ABOUT PREVENTION OF SEX ABUSE
Approximately 200 people came to hear Laura Ahearn, executive director of Parents for Megan's Law, talk about the law and the prevention of sex abuse in general. The meeting was attended by an extraordinary large number of concerned parents and community members. She explained how children need to be taught to be wary of tricky people who try to manipulate them into inappropriate situations or activities, and described two different types of offenders: the situational type and the seductor. A true pedophile will actively seek out the child and groom them while gaining the trust of the parents.
