Overview

What's the best thing to do if you find that a convicted sex offender is living down the street from you? What steps can you take to protect your children from sexual predators? And, if you are a convicted sex offender who wants to reform, can you do so? What should you be prepared to do if you really want to earn a place for yourself back in the community again?

            These are some of the questions that author Jake Goldenflame answers in OVERCOMING SEXUAL TERORRISM: 40 Ways to Protect Your Children from Sexual Predators (Xlibris, 2004).

            Drawing from the sex offenders he has met and walked the prison yard with, therapists, corrections officials and former victims of sexual abuse, he speaks as one who has been there. Molested as a child by a convicted sex offender, as he tells in the book, he grew up to become one himself, went to prison where he sought and received help and has never re-offended since coming out almost 15 years ago. Interviewed by Oprah, People Magazine, USA Today and all the networks and cable channels, as well as by media throughout the English-speaking world, he is now a champion of sex offender reform and helps former victims to heal.

            How can a sex offender change? What makes them become sex offenders in the first place? What steps can all prisons take to make sure other offenders do as well? Step-by-step, he shows you how to use Megan's Law to turn your neighborhood into a sheltering fortress that will protect all of its children, while leaving a way open for those former offenders who really want to have a healthier life.

            Other topics include how to guard your loved ones from rapists and child molesters, child prostitution and incest. How to protect yourself and your family from repeat sex offenders who move in nearby. How to spot tomorrow's sexual predator before he even grows up.

            He lists forty steps every parent or child care-provider could take to make children safer from sexual predators: on the street, in the Chat rooms, in youth organizations and everywhere else.

            Telltale signs of an incest marriage and what you could do to rescue the children trapped there. How you could help stop child prostitution. How the United States Supreme Court now unwittingly discourages sex offenders from seeking help while in prison.

            He examines religion, to ask whether it can help the sex offender who wants to recover. He asks whether someone can go so far into evil that there is no way they can make it back.

            Finally he answers the question of why there will always be sex offenders, why castration or locking them all up won't work and what you could do to get more effective laws passed. An 8-step path to neighborhood safety and how to serve as a volunteer to police and community corrections agencies concludes the last chapter.

            The forty ways are then summarized, followed by a bibliography, and a rich list of  reader's resources including useful websites, referral organizations and other books that can be of help.

            Asked how he would summarize this book in one sentence, the author replied, "How to prevent every parent's worst nightmare."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books aim to educate parents about sexual predators. Johnson, a leading expert on children's safety, focuses on keeping children away from pedophiles lurking online. Owing to his intended audience-parents/caregivers with little computer knowledge-he provides a lot of screen shots to clarify concepts and terms. After running through the basics of the Internet, Johnson goes into detail about the threats posed by people intending to harm children on the Internet and ways to reduce the risks. He then offers a detailed examination and comparison of the software available to protect children online. Parents, who can find this topic scary and overwhelming, will be empowered by Johnson's manageable guidebook. A welcome addition to public libraries. Goldenflame, a recovering sex offender, offers an eyeopening examination of his life and inner struggle through rehabilitation. The book is not, as the subtitle suggests, a quick reference for parents/caregivers looking to protect their children from sexual predators. Instead, it is a memoir sprinkled with the odd tip; though suggestions are helpfully consolidated at the end, this is essentially Goldenflame's personal story, with telling anecdotes that could benefit fellow recovering sex offenders. Recommended for larger memoir/recovery collections.-Kari Ramstrom, MLIS, Plymouth, MN Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
