"Sam's Secret" is a children's book written to facilitate parent / child discussions on the very sensitive topic of sexual assault and abuse.
Sam's Secret talks with kids about the importance of telling a trusted adult if someone tries to hurt them. Its intended purpose is to help children learn and remember critical safety tips that apply to the dangers of sexual abuse and assault.
"Through this book, we hope all children, especially those who have been abused or assaulted, will hear and know some very important things: No one has the right to hurt them; If they are hurt, that they are not alone and it's not their fault; and it's OK to tell," says Lisa M. Taub, author of Sam's Secret.
Sam's Secret was originally designed as a foundational teaching component of the radKIDS Personal Empowerment Safety Education Program, with the goal of initiating conversation and classroom discussion about "Good, Bad and Uncomfortable Touch." It has since become a valuable therapeutic tool for health professionals in the treatment of children who have been sexually assaulted.
Every year thousands of children are abused, mistreated and found missing in incidents that can be avoided through education and training. Although parents realize how important it is for their children be taught critical safety skills, they often don't know how to initiate the necessary training. Sam's Secret is the answer.
