Share Article

Book supported by numerous public figures in its quest to empower children to prevent sexual abuse.

I’m the Boss of Me! is a powerful new book which treads new ground in battling the prevalent societal issue of sexual abuse inflicted on children.

Written for both adults and children, particularly those aged four to eight, the book is beautifully illustrated and tastefully written to raise awareness for both parents and children of the importance of empowering children as a means of preventing sexual abuse. The book is backed by the Darkness to Light organization, founded by Anne Lee, whose meaningful message to parents prefaces the book.

Author Laura Fogarty, herself a sexual abuse survivor embarked on this project in order to provide a go-to book for dealing with this difficult issue. The project is supported by such public figures as filmmaker, writer and activist Angela Shelton, licensed therapist Karen Fennell, author Bobbi Conner and Roscoe Orman, known to most as Gordon of Sesame Street.

“Laura Fogarty’s I’m the Boss of Me! … is a wonderfully empowering book which can equip the most vulnerable and precious members of our community with the information and the affirmation they need to protect and defend themselves against one of the most insidious and potentially damaging elements of our society, the predatory adult who targets the very young,” said Mr. Orman.

“The book is written in language that is just right for kids – doing the job of educating without frightening,” added Ms Conner, who also hosts the award-winning Parent’s Journal Podcast.
I’m the Boss of Me! is now available on for $17.99 in hardback.

Ms Fogarty has a full and in-demand publicity schedule for the launch of this book and will be attending multiple book fairs, including the Decatur Book Festival, known as the largest independent book festival in the United States, attracting over 70,000 people each year.
