Therapists' Acclaim for REPAIR for Kids

"REPAIR for Kids provides a comprehensive, honest and passionate approach for children recovering from sexual abuse. Children will benefit from this book, and be encouraged to continue on their recovery journey." -Jill Osborne, Ed.S, author of Sam Feels Better Now

"I wish I had had something like this a long time ago for my sad and shamed 'little girl' within. I can't think of anything I'd change. You have covered it all and with wonderful sensitivity, perfect timing and terrific repair exercises. I love the cartoons and the colorfulness of your book as well." -Marcelle Taylor, MFT

"I found this book to be well thought out and written, and one that would be helpful for any child who has known the pain of sexual abuse. I wish a caring adult had shared this book with my siblings and myself, it would have helped ease our pain and sorrow." -Michael Skinner, musician and child mental health advocate

Editorial Reviews

Maria Edwards
This is a much needed book for children who have been sexually abused. With delightful illustrations and a simply guided tour, this can be used by an older child by himself or under the guidance of a family members or adult friend. (There are instructions for an adult who uses the book to help a child.) The author has used simple terms and created easy tools to help any child work through the devastation of sexual abuse.

Highly recommended.
Virginia S. Grenier
This is the second book in the Growing with Love Series designed to help children recover from Incest and Childhood Sexual Abuse. However, I felt this book could work in helping children who felt bullied move past the hurt feelings and build-up their self-confidence.

REPAIR for Kids is a multiple step program for children to tell, express, and move beyond childhood abuse. Adults using this book will find at the beginning instructions on the best ways to help children recover using this
