Publisher Comments:

Hansen takes readers deep into the world of child predators to show what we can do to protect ourselves and our families.

Police sergeant Rick Woody thought he was doing everything in his power to protect his thirteen-year-old daughter, Kacie, on and off line.

He kept the computer in the living room facing out, he sometimes checked her chats and e-mails, and he made sure Kacie knew not to give out her address or any other personal information. But neither Kacie nor Rick knew that her "seventeen-year-old" friend Dave from California was actually a forty-nine-year-old child predator until it was too late.

Such victims inspired Dateline to create the "To Catch a Predator" series that investigates online predators. Now, correspondent Chris Hansen shares the many stories of the victims who have motivated him to speak out.

These are stories of parents, children, wives, and families, who have had their lives shattered by child predators. Their accounts expose the twisted psychology and workings of men who prey on children and teens, how they manipulate their victims and their loved ones, and the way they've destroyed children, families, and communities. Hansen also explores effective punishment and treatments to stamp out the crime.

We live in a new online world where the time-tested rules of parenting no longer sufficiently protect children. See the real dangers facing teenagers today and learn what you can do to keep them safe.

To Catch a Predator takes you beyond the broadcast into a shadowy world that every parent needs to understand. Inside the pages you will find:

  • What motivates child predators and how they choose their prey
  • An in-depth look at child victims and what made them targets
  • What happens to families who suddenly discover they are living with a child predator
  • What detectives, therapists and child predators feel are the best deterrents and treatments to prevent this crime
  • What parents must do to protect their kids online, what sites to block, and what software to get
  • And, most important, how parents can talk to children about on-line safety WITHOUT scaring them

Synopsis:

The creator and correspondent of the powerful NBC "Dateline" To Catch a Predator series presents a strong analysis of what some feel is a child predator epidemic and a startling look at the shortcomings of the current systems within society.

Audrey Starkey, September 16, 2008 (view all comments by Audrey Starkey)
When the Internet entered our homes, time-tested methods of parenting were suddenly outdated. Today parents must equip themselves with knowledge that was not available 20 years ago.

To Catch a Predator teaches parents how to spot the real dangers facing our children today. This book expose the twisted manner in which preditors leur children into their web of lies, creating a danger unlike any we have ever seen. Actual cases are are explored. The twisted psychology of the men and women who prey on children through Internet use are explained, and the book also descrbes treatment options available for the predators.

Parents would be wise to purchase this book, to become informed of not only the dangers, but how you can be sure your child is safe. The price of the book is a small investment when you compare what the knowledge could prevent.
