Childhelp, one of the largest victim advocacy programs in the U.S., estimates that between four and seven children die each day from child abuse in the U.S. This record is among the worst of any industrialized nation.

In an effort to improve this statistic, author Deborah J. Monroe releases her new book, “Good Secrets, Bad Secrets” (published by LifeRich Publishing), to introduce the topic of abuse to children and instruct them on what to do if they know of someone being abused.

“Good Secrets, Bad Secrets” differentiates between the types of secrets that children often share between them. The book explains why bad secrets need to be shared with an adult and assures children they are doing the right thing.

Monroe herself experienced the harrowing affects of child abuse and has since dedicated her life to stopping it. She hopes her book will help children understand what to do if they know someone being abused.
