Girls are being stalked, beaten, raped, abused, and murdered by strangers…and by the men in their lives.
No girl is safe from harm, particularly in today's world where social media makes it too easy to connect with people she barely knows.
There are many dangerous people out there who aren't behind bars, and parents of teen girls need to be more proactive than ever about keeping their daughters safe. That's the message veteran criminal profiler Pat Brown wants parents of young women to understand. In this no-holds-barred book, Brown, who is a frequent go-to expert on Nancy Grace and other shows on HLN, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and NBC, shouts loud and clear that every young woman is vulnerable to a plethora of unforeseen dangers.
Brown has provided crime commentary and profile and forensic analysis in more than 2,000 television and radio appearances across the globe, and she knows what is really going on in the world. She wants parents and their daughters to understand how predators choose victims, and how to avoid becoming a target. In How to Save Your Daughter's Life, Brown covers all of the dangers that today's young women face and arms parents with information they rarely get from professionals, including the truth about what behaviors might get their daughters abused, raped, or killed - careless actions and attitudes no one usually talks about. It may not be pretty, but neither is being a victim.
How to Save Your Daughter's Life will teach parents how to:
Poor narration. Very mechanical, robot-like. The only real meat of the book, or at least what I was seeking was in the last one-third of the book. The first two-thirds of the book was probably valuable for parents who need some sort of parental guidance? But, my impression was a little 'Puritan.' I didn't agree with Pat's advise on how girls can get rid of an abusive, stalker boyfriend. I work in a prison with an 85% sex offender population. I would rather teach my daughter how to be direct and unwavering by use of inflection of her voice combined with a monotone, lower pitch quality and telling him directly that she is not interested in him and that she needs him to go away and leave her alone. I might even suggest that she make a meeting place and let him believe they are going to be alone and the parents come with and stand with her to tell him to bugger off. That's not public humility, that is family unity which would more likely move him along. I had to force myself to finish the book.
