Description

De Becker shatters the widely held myths about danger and safety and helps parents find some certainty about life's highest-stakes questions:

  • How can I know a baby-sitter won't turn out to be someone who harms my child?
  • What should I ask child-care professionals when I interview them?
  • What's the best way to prepare my child for walking to school alone?
  • How can my child be safer at school?
  • How can I spot sexual predators?
  • What should I do if my child is lost in public?
  • How can I teach my child about risk without causing too much fear?
  • What must my teenage daughter know in order to be safe?
  • What must my teenage son know in order to be safe?
  • And finally, in the face of all these questions, how can I reduce the worrying?
