Stopping Sexual Predators before they strike should be the primary focus in the effort to combat child molestation.
It is not.
Society has determined to waste its resources dealing with predators after they cause damage to children. Although society is certainly justified in using precious resources to PUNISH predators after due process, the ex-sex offender registries are ineffective and counterproductive. They destroy more lives than they purport to save.
Instead, society should consider legislating mandatory sexual abuse awareness as early as the first grade. Children need this protection.
It should also consider registering adults who are responsible for the academic and spiritual education, and recreation of children instead of using the millions of dollars it spends registering and monitoring former predators whose recidivism rate is extremely low. Registration should detail the consequences for sexually abusing children. Current Sex Offender registration causes unwarranted harm to families of former offenders. It does not protect children from future harm.
In addition, society should consider holding parents accountable when they fail to protect their children from predators.
The focus of this book is to arm children, parents and others responsible for children by providing answers to the questions: Who is molesting kids and why? When and where are children molested? How does molestation take place? And most important, what should be done to prevent this moral epidemic?
