I am excited to announce that “The Promise Book; Tell Someone” is now available at Amazon.com and at www.thisisdebbiebarth.com. The book is the key to the vehicle allowing parents to talk with their small children about child predators without frightening or intimidating them. The website, for this book, also includes a blog that will express my experiences, as well as the experiences of others. From time to time, I will share those blogs, here as well.
However, I will also continue my thoughts on all subjects known to mankind. So … stay tuned.
Here is the first blog from my new www.thisisdebbiebarth.com. The subject matter is not always easy to write about, but, it is a subject that needs to be addressed … and, combated.
Only The Beginning
It was a day … just like any other day. The walk home from elementary school … was like any other walk. Yes, it was like any other day … until she walked through the front door, into the living room.
He appeared to be asleep, with his face and body turned toward the back sofa cushions. He was completely undressed. He must have heard her come in, and knew that she was standing there. He turned over, looked at her … and smiled.
She was feeling uncomfortable, and yet, unable to move. He was lying there, undressed, now … staring at her. He had such a strange smile on his face. He told her to come closer. She did.
He took her hand and put on his … “private part.” It was so quite in the house. She couldn’t breathe. His smile became even wider, even stranger. And then … he let her hand go.
He said, “go change your clothes and go out and play.”
She ran to her room, closed the door, changed clothes hurriedly, and then ran through the kitchen and … out the back door. She wasn’t sure what had just happened … but … she was glad it was over.
What she didn’t know …was that it was just beginning ….
Unfortunately, child predators are often the people closest to the child. Please look for the signs. Trust your own instincts. And, protect your children. Don’t rely on them to tell you something is wrong. They won’t, unless you have talked to them, beforehand. Prepare them. Let them know … before it happens … that they can “tell someone,” no matter who the abuser is.
I hope that you will also take some time to drop by website, at www.thisisdebbiebarth.com and look at this beautiful book, “The Promise Book; Tell Someone,” aimed at helping parents talk with their small children about child predators in a way that is not frightening or intimidating.
So, you are now really seeing the different sides of Debbie Barth … because … “this is really Debbie Barth.”
