  1. When my sister in law Patty found out I was writing this book, she described what had happened to her when she was five, for the very first time. To her surprise, she found out her sisters were bothered by the same man….we must teach that after they say no to bad behavior and go to a safe place they must TELL, to save themselves and future targets as well. Her father, a motorcycle cop in Minneapolis would surely have been proactive in taking care of this
    Bad behavior, if Patty had confided in him or her mother.
