COLLINGSWOOD, N.J. (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
Jerome L. Whitehead, a writer who has contributed to various online and printed publications, has completed his new book “Groomed”: a poignant work that tackles how any form of abuse can harm a person and the tendency for people to blame the victim rather than the abuser through the perspective of a thirteen-year-old victim and a fifty-five-year-old survivor
Author Whitehead emphasizes the significance of a parent’s treatment to a child in their development as an individual: “I know now that I probably would have been a young boy who would not have craved attention and inclusion as much as I did. The need for attention may have come from the absence of my father, but my need for inclusion came from my molestation. I don’t confuse the two, but they are very much entwined. The need for attention is in every child. A child needs to feel as if he/she has worth, especially in the eyes of their parents. If your parents are the first beings that you meet, and you’ve come to know them as your providers, protectors, and nurturers, why wouldn’t their opinion of you matter?”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jerome L. Whitehead’s thought-provoking book sheds light on the feelings of guilt and shame of those who have been sexually abused, especially when they are blamed for that certain painful experience they are subjected into. It also send a message to parents—their actions, decisions, and treatment are factors to a child’s behavior, character, and temperament.
Readers who wish to experience this poignant work can purchase “Groomed” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
