Cast in firm kindness and full of expectancy of understanding and change, STOP! Just for Kids faces the hard issues of youthful sexual offending with stunning candor. The topics of the illegality of sexual abuse, consequences, personal responsibility, consent, empathy, denial, normal sexuality and more are carefully considered. With only a few thoughts on each page, the book's messages are meant to be pondered deliberately, reasoned through one by one, talked out with a therapist or in treatment groups, and deeply felt, in the hope that the ideas they express will enlighten and transform sexually troubled boys and girls. A unique teaching tool for therapists treating preadolescents with serious sexual behavior problems.
