Publisher Comments:

The acclaimed family psychologist Dr. Rebecca Bailey tells parents how to keep their kids, toddlers to teens, safe, with an introduction by Terry Probyn.

Every parent asks themselves: “Are my children safe? How can I make them safer? What do I need to know?” Whether their children are six or sixteen, whether they live in a rural town, suburb, or a bustling city, all parents worry about threats—from cyber-bullying to exploitation and abduction. What should they tell their children and when? What practical steps can they take to reduce the risks and keep their kids safe? Dr. Rebecca Bailey, with the assistance of her sister and registered nurse, Elizabeth, gives easily understood, easily followed answers in Safe Kids, Smart Parents.

This accessible, authoritative guide to child safety empowers all parents in a practical and personable way. It offers:

· an easy to follow Safety List,

· games like “be a Lert” to play with younger children,

· the Safety Algorithm to help kids of all ages learn to critically assess situations and take steps that will keep children safer

· and many more resources

Safe Kids, Smart Parents builds on Dr. Bailey’s years of experience as a family psychologist helping real families deal with real situations. From abduction to abuse, Bailey explains how parents can speak to their kids about troubling topics while building their self-esteem and teaching them how to protect themselves. A smart, comprehensive, and easy to read resource, Safe Kids, Smart Parents is the most important book a parent can own.

Review:

"Family psychologist Bailey affirms that the ultimate goal of abduction and exploitation awareness is not to induce paranoia, but to make children feel loved, and for parents to trust that their kids are making safe choices. However, parents teaching Bailey's hypervigilant approach, even in a caring, measured manner, are still likely to create more fear than comfort. Beginning with advice for adults, and following with core information grouped based on the child's age (from toddlers to teens), the book provides advice and lessons that push a three-pronged approach of 'safety, awareness, and communication.' Bailey's safety tips take a traditional approach, maintaining that even though abduction by strangers is statistically rare, one child lost is too many. Writing with her sister Elizabeth, a registered nurse, Bailey also addresses abduction by parents in divorce and visitation situations. According to Bailey, kids should know their environment well enough to determine when something is not right, formulate 'safety equations' to evaluate situations, and make a list of trustworthy adults as part of a 'Safe Kid Kit,' along with an overall safety agreement children and parents complete together. Bailey's communication strategy suggests a proactive approach and will help parents build the kind of trust that will encourage kids to speak up.
