Stacey Honowitz Offers Two Books For Parents To Lead The Discussion With Their Kids On Keeping Their Private Parts Private

OK~ There is no time like the present to focus on keeping our kids safe. We have months and days designated throughout the year to promote keeping our kids safe. In all reality, shouldn't this be something that we all should care about all 365 days of the year? With online activity rising like crazy, due to social media; it's more important than ever to stay on your toes and open the conversation at a very young age.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Stacey Honowitz over the course of the past four years and I can tell you that she is passionate about what she does. Stacey believes that all kids should be safe, be it online and/or offline.

Stacey Honowitz has worked with the Florida State Attorney's Office of Sex Crimes and Child Abuse for 21 years. She appears regularly on CNN, MSNBC, Headline News, FOX News as a Legal Analyst and has been featured on Dateline NBC, CBS News 48 Hours, and Good Morning America. Did you know that children's sex crimes are the fastest growing sex crimes in the country? Yet it's something we fail to talk about.

If you are a parent wondering how you can have a discussion with your kids. Stacey has written two children's books that can help you jump start the conversation.

My Privates are Private and Genius With A Penis, Don't Touch are two books that Stacey has written. You can easily purchase them from Amazon and let the conversation begin.

Stacey offers tips and advice for families all across the country. Here's insight as to what parents should watch for.

What changes in a child's behavior should raise a red flag for parents?
Some behaviors in small children are nightmares, bed wetting, a constant need to be with you, a fear when you go to change them, and a general fear of staying alone with the person after they never had a problem before. I don't like to generalize, because some of these behaviors are indicative of other issues, but sometimes a decline of grades in older kids, and a lack of enthusiasm for things warrant a discussion. It might not be abuse, but certainly if something doesn't sit right with you, make sure and ask if they feel uncomfortable about something and want to share it.

The lesson here is to be vigilant as a parent. It's ok to be comfortable, but it's never ok to accept things for the way they "should" be when it comes to our kids and their safety. Connect with parents in your area and open the discussion. Stacey's books are a great way to begin the conversation and start talking about a topic that nobody wants to address.

Our kids are worth talking about and when it comes to keeping them safe, communities everywhere should have resources available for parents 24/7.  After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
