Since their imaginations can create fantasies worse than any actual situation, they need correct and comprehensible information. The more children know, the better they will be able to protect themselves should they encounter a dangerous situation. All responsible, caring adults want children to be safe. Unfortunately, our society is becoming increasingly unsafe for children. Young people ware being physically abused and neglected in alarming numbers. Recent statistics estimate that approximately one million cases of abuse and neglect occur in schools, day care centers, camps, baby sitters' homes, and other "safe" places.
