Childhood Sexual Abuse Prevention Program
Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse and Abduction
In a candid and revealing expose’, Laura Ahearn, Executive Director of Parents for Megan’s Law shatters common myths about Megan’s Law and stranger danger while giving parents and caregivers real life answers on how to prevent children from falling prey to sexual predators.
Laura A. Ahearn, L.M.S.W., provides an historical accounting of sex offender registration and notification laws in the United States with an educational undertone aimed at preventing communities from being lulled into a false sense of security: “Parents mistakenly believe that their children are immune to sexual victimization if they know the whereabouts of convicted sex offenders in their community, warns Ahearn. “Since most sexual abuse, over 90% happens with someone a child has an established and trusting relationship with, parents need specific skills to help them protect themselves and their children from those that are not known and convicted.”
Frustrated at trying to identify an effective program to help protect children, Ahearn developed the Apple of My Eye Childhood Sexual Abuse Prevention Program which gives parents the same skills and knowledge she learned while working as a social worker on real cases. Ahearn identifies 27 Tricks that predators use to access children, Red Flags to detect a predator in your midst, 10 Safety Rules for Children and other valuable tools to protect against sexual abuse and abduction.
