Essential guidance on what parents can do to protect their children and empower their children to protect themselves.

Today’s children are surrounded by risks and dangers virtually unheard of a generation ago. In turn, parents are faced with fears about their children’s safety that can leave many feeling utterly helpless. Keeping Kids Safe provides parents with crucial information that will alert them to the possible risks that face their children and show them what they can do take to avoid those risks.

Organized in a list format, each chapter begins with facts about the safety issue, and then moves on to provide lists of causes, deterrent strategies, prevention techniques, and warning signs that parents should look for when dealing with each topic. Chapters conclude with a section featuring additional references, organizations, and online resources, as well as a recommended reading list. This is a handy reference that parents can turn to again and again for advice on safety risks that may arise at various stages of a child’s development. Topics include:

• Choosing child care
• After school safety
• Kids and gangs
• School violence
• Gun violence
• Depression and teen suicide
• Preventing sexual abuse
• Coping with peer pressure
• Drinking and driving
• Substance abuse
• Media violence
• Safety on the Internet

Keeping Kids Safe is the “you-can-never-be-too-safe” guide that no parent should be without.
