Jayneen Sanders, author of, “Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept,” visited our (yours and mine) humble, little blog the other day and commented, “The more we have voices like yours to speak out, the more parents and teachers will educate kids on sexual abuse prevention education. Well done!” On behalf of the blog, I would like to say, “Thank you! It’s an honor.”

Not only did she comment, but she provided an excellent tool for parents and/or teachers to use in combating sexual abuse and preventing such atrocities. Ms. Sanders book, “Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept,” is about a little boy, Sir Alfred©, who is a victim of sexual abuse. It is not just the tale of a boy, but instead is told like a fairy-tale, which all children love to hear (I, myself, love a good fairy-tale), but can also relate to, as Sir Alfred© is a child himself. I read the book and was enthralled with it the entire time. It not only held my interest, but if read to a child or if a child reads it him/herself, I believe that he/she will feel more comfortable about opening up and telling their ‘secret.’ That’s what we want, right? We want children who have and who are enduring such trials to have a way out, a person to confide in, and a path to healing. Telling the ‘secret’ is the first step, so let’s help them take it.

I want to preface my next sentence by saying that I do not earn any royalties off of the purchase of this book, nor do I have any monetary, vested interest in the sale of the book. However, I do have a vested interest in abused children, and I do believe that this book is an excellent tool to help them. The book is available for purchase at www.somesecrets.info, and is available as a stand-alone purchase, or as a teacher’s stand-alone purchase, or as a package deal with both the book and the teacher’s package, with prices starting at $13.59. All purchases are directed through PayPal for your security, which I thought was a good thing. 🙂

In addition to the actual books and teacher’s packages, you can hear the reading of the book on You Tube! The reading is done by Debra Byrne, and she does an absolutely awesome job in portraying the characters and letting you feel what poor, little, Sir Alfred must have felt. Even if you do not want to purchase the books, please listen to the reading, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YjJ1MreZqs. I guarantee that you will be satisfied and thoroughly impressed with the book and the reading. 

Parents, Teachers, Audience, we need to help our children. Don’t let them become victims, and if they do, don’t let them stay that way. Let’s teach them about good touch and bad touch. Let’s teach them that painful ‘secrets’ should never be kept. Let’s teach them how to survive so that they do just that. I tell my story so that others may learn from it, so that maybe another child won’t have to go through and endure the things that I have. I hope that you all take heed and help support the cause. Spread the word! Share the healing!

Sincerely,

Elise
