She has provided important information for several years to both parents and children on the issues of child molestation and continues to send the message that the importance of reporting the abuse is the first step in healing.

Parents always want to know how to talk to their children about sexual abuse. The importance of “My Privates are Private” is two fold. This book will put both parents and children at ease when dealing with this delicate, almost taboo subject matter. The main character Betsy Boodle allows parents who find themselves having difficulty “breaking the ice” the ability to communicate openly with their child about the importance of reporting abuse. It provides easy to remember limericks which send powerful and important messages, first and foremost the importance of reporting the abuse. This book empowers children and parents who sometimes have a problem finding the “right words” for a frank and open discussion. Children will see that Betsy Boodle is not afraid to speak her mind if she thinks that she was abused. She advocates the many ways that you can report and most importantly she teaches others that they should never be afraid to speak up.
