I Am Safe - Parent/Teacher/Advocate Companion: Training Children to Recognize & Avoid Sexual Abuse in a Positive Setting (Paperback)
I AM SAFE Parent/Teacher/Advocate Companion I AM SAFE's adult companion book has smaller versions of the same pictures, so an adult can color along with the child, creating a comforting setting rather than a "We need to talk" discussion setting. The adult version has additional information that can be adapted to the child's age and level of understanding, including statistics, questions to ask, and some great ideas, such as a family password. I AM SAFE is created for advocacy groups, churches, schools, and homes - appropriate for children in sheltered environments as well as children overcoming past abuse.

The Journey to I AM SAFE: Rae has an Amazon bestselling series of suspense/romance novels on international human trafficking for adults (Stolen Woman, Stolen Child, and Stolen Future). When Rae's research brought her to the knowledge that the average age for teen girls to get trafficked in the US is 12-14 and the average age for boys 11-13, she also wrote a series of novels for teens and pre-teens, presenting trafficking in an age-appropriate way for children as young as 10 (Capturing Jasmina, Buying Samir, and Seeking Mother). However, when speaking and training, her focus on preventing trafficking by preventing childhood sexual abuse, or helping children to overcome so they would not be victims of continued exploitation, she realized the resource missing was something to help children know not just what behavior crossed the line of appropriateness, but what to do if someone crossed that line. Parents, teachers, and advocates needed a way to present information to children that would not over-educate or frighten children. Concerned about the difficulties such a project would face, Rae put off the project for over a year, but every time she spoke, the continued confrontation with the need compelled her to find a way. I AM SAFE was created to meet that need for both children and adults to be able to address this important issue in a non-threatening, comfortable way.
