Reviews of this training:

“This training is a game changer. I attended this training hoping to learn about how to spot a child predator. Instead what I learned is the framework I can put in place to not have to spot a child predator. Setting boundaries has changed my life and allowed me to live in less fear about my daughter. I also took steps to set boundaries around a family member that makes me suspicious. I feel more empowered and educated about this issue. I also learned important techniques on how to speak to my daughter about her body. Christy has not only the statistics, but the tools and action you can implement in your own life. This training way exceeded my expectations and should be mandatory for parents and educators.”— Amanda Allen, Attorney and Parent

“I attended the child sexual abuse prevention training course provided by Christy and it was organized and very informational. As a Family Law Attorney, I have recommended the course to clients and colleagues. Her personal family story and her passion make this training a must for any adults who have children they love in their lives.”— Puja A. Sachdev, Family Law Attorney, San Diego, CA

“Very informative. It’s heart breaking but the statistics don’t lie; it happens. This class helps you to watch out for signs and helps educate your children as well.”— Yuleni D., San Diego mom
