Author Phillis T. Forrest and bookcover
Detroit, MI (August 16, 2012) -- Through a Child's Eyes tells a true-life story that references the importance of protecting your child against sexual predators. Author Phillis T. Forrest opens her old wounds and shares a touching story in order to structure a guideline for single mothers in hopes to help them protect their children from sexual predators.
Through A Child's Eyes speaks on the process of a sexual predator that stalked and preyed his way into the author's life at the young age of seven. This nightmare began the day that her mother broke her household rules that she put into place to protect the author and her siblings. The consequences of her actions allowed a complete stranger to abuse and manipulate the author over a period of 14 years that ultimately led to mothering two of his children.
Forrest comments, "I told my story because I wanted to show the world exactly how this man manipulated his way into my existence and to show mothers how this sort of situation can happen."
The story is written in a guideline format with plenty of examples of the experiences that the author encountered each time the protection of her mother lessened. The story of the author is told to gain the credibility of her readers which in turn shows them that the opposite of her mother's actions could have saved her from her nightmare.
In chapter 14, entitled "Mother's Let's Have a Conversation", the author breaks away from her story to have a heart-to-heart with mothers. The chapter touches on subjects that are often not discussed in the homes of sexually abused children. With subtitles such as: "Ripley's Believe It Or Not", "Flipping the Script", and "Knowledge Is Power" (to name a few), the author begins to break down the psychological awareness that parents need to become educated on when dealing with a child that has been preyed upon by a child molester.
A paperback copy of Through a Child's Eyes can be purchased online at www.throughachildseyes290611.com and Amazon.com, and a e-book copy can be downloaded via the Kindle.
"There are so many times that I have read a book and wished I could have had a conversation with the author to answer perplexing questions," says Forrest. Because of this, she has given the public an opportunity to speak with her through her website (www.throughachildseyes290611.com), scheduled radio talk show segments, and book signings in California, Michigan, Tennessee and Georgia.
Forrest has been an amazing mother to two beautiful girls despite the circumstances. Her dream is to share her story with the world; in order to educate mothers, protect children, and help victims let go of their pain.
