Teleclass: My Body Belongs to Me – Keeping Your Children Safe from Predators

2-21-13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Did you know that studies show that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be molested by the time they are 18?

In this important seminar parents will:

  • Be provided with 10 tips to keep their children safe
  • Address 3 big truths about child sexual abuse
  • Discuss the cycle of silence
  • Learn how to equip children as young as 3-years old how to learn the language and skills that can protect them from sexual predators

In this seminar Jill will discuss how, if children are not educated about the importance of telling an adult they trust, abuse can start, continue and escalate. Ms. Starishevsky has prosecuted child abuse and sex crimes in New York City for more than a decade. She will speak to us as an author who wants to prevent children from suffering in silence and prevent child sexual abuse through education. Her book is geared to 3- to 10-year-old children and was featured in Time Out New York Kids.

Jill Starishevsky is an Assistant District Attorney in New York City, where she has prosecuted hundreds of sex offenders and dedicated her career to seeking justice for victims of child abuse and sex crimes. Outside the courtroom, Jill’s fondness for writing led her to create thepoemlady.com, where she pens personalized pieces. Her mission to protect children, along with her penchant for poetry, inspired My Body Belongs to Me. A mother of two, Jill is also founder of HowsMyNanny.com, a service that enables parents to purchase a license plate for their child’s stroller so the public can report positive or negative nanny observations.  Jill is accessible via her website, or by phone at 646-262-7418 and 646-262-7418.  Check out a recent book review.
