In his groundbreaking best seller The Gift of Fear, Gavin de Becker showed millions of readers that, like every creature on earth, human beings can predict violent behavior. Now, in this exclusive audio presentation of Protecting the Gift, de Becker empowers parents to fully trust their own intuition when it comes to their children's safety. In this indispensable resource, de Becker provides keen insights into the behavior and strategies of predators. He offers practical new steps to enhance children's safety at every age level: specific questions parents can ask to effectively screen and evaluate babysitters, daycare services, schools, and doctors; a "Test of 12" safety skills children need before being alone in public; warning signs to help parents protect children from sexual abuse; and how to keep teenage girls and boys from unsafe situations with peers and adults. De Becker also shatters the myth that rules like "Never talk to strangers" will keep your children safe. By showing what danger really looks like - as opposed to what we might imagine it looks like - de Becker gives parents freedom from many common worries and unwarranted fears.

    " Great book with lots of practical advice. Some things seemed a little over the top or overprotective to me, and I have to be careful not to be completely paranoid now :) Overall, the book was very empowering and gave me the courage to stand up for my kids if I feel they are in danger and not worry so much about offending someone. I have already applied some of his suggestions and feel like I am much more aware of potential predators and what makes people a target. "

    " Every time I put this book down because I get to anxious reading about all the bad scenarios a child can get into, I pick up another piece of valuable information. "
