Overview

Do you know who your child is socializing with outside the home? Are you protecting your child from gang activity through taking positive actions, such as monitoring their activities, fostering close relationships with them, and using positive discipline strategies? Parents play a pivotal role in keeping young people out of gangs.

Most parents think not my child and lack information about gangs. Gangs are groups of children, adolescents and young adults who share a common identity and are involved in wrongful or delinquent activities. Most gang members tend to be adolescents or young adults, however, recent trends indicate that children are being recruited into gangs at a much earlier age, some when they are in elementary school. Traditionally, gang activity has been confined to cities but gangs are no longer just in large cities, they also exist in smaller towns and rural areas. Gangs can include people of every gender, race, culture and socioeconomic group.

Did you know…?

• There were an estimated 29,400 gangs and 756,000 gang members throughout 3,500 jurisdictions across the United States.
• Today’s gangs are very sophisticated, crossing state lines to establish groups and recruit members as young as 10 years old in communities across the country.
• Gangs use children because they know that whatever a child under thirteen does, they cannot go to jail.
• 32.4% of all the nation's cities, suburban towns and rural areas experienced gang problems
• Gangs are one of the leading factors in the growth of violent crimes in recent years both on and off school property.
• Gang involvement puts your child at risk of being arrested, getting badly hurt or even being killed.
• Gang involvement usually includes alcohol and drug use.
• Your child’s involvement in a gang puts your entire family at risk for retaliation from other gangs that they have been involved with in the past.

Meet the Author

As one of the non-fiction genre's most successful authors, Stacey Chillemi enjoys an ever-expanding and tremendously loyal following.

My books regularly appear on Amazon’s best-seller lists and have sold more than 60,000 copies. The most recent original paperback, The Complete Herbal Guide: Heal Your Body Naturally and Maintain Optimal Health Using Alternative Medicine, Herbals, Vitamins, Fruits and Vegetables (December 2012) debuted at # 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list and has been rated five stars from numerous readers who purchased the book.

I graduated college, received an Associate’s Degrees in Business, and then went on to receive a Bachelor Degree in Marketing and Advertising, but in the end, I changed my career choice to journalism. I graduated Richard Stockton College in 1996.
I began writing seriously in 1994, penning the manuscript that would become Epilepsy You’re Not Alone. I held many jobs during those first years as a writer, finally settling in (much to our delight) to write full time in 2000.

I am an active member in my community and I help organizations in New Jersey. I have written features for journals and newspapers. My articles have appeared in dozens of newspapers and magazines in North America and abroad. I won an award from the Epilepsy Foundation of America in 2002 for my help and dedication to people with epilepsy.
Born in 1972, I was born in New York and I live in New Jersey with my husband Michael, and my three children, Michael, Alexis and Anthony. The family pets include two Shih Tzu’s, Rocco and Princess, and two birds Elmo and Tweedy.

When I am not writing, I chase after my three Shih Tzu’s, takes long walks, hit the gym, and goes to all my kids’ football, soccer, wrestling, basketball and cheerleading practices and games.
