About the Book

Why would someone write a book about a child molester? As a lifelong educator, the most challenging situation I faced was dealing with the possibility a teacher was sexually molesting a student. The teacher in question was so popular no one could believe he was doing what the student alleged. I came into contact with experts who described the characteristics of a child molester…characteristics I had not or most educators had not been made aware of in our formal training. Once I heard of the modus operandi of a child molester I had the information I needed to begin dealing with not only that situation but others faced. Everyone was “Naïve”…it just couldn’t be! “A Parent’s Trust Betrayed” has been inspired and fictionalized into a worst case scenario to bring out molester’s characteristics to help others become knowledgeable. Most teachers/coaches/tutors/organizations, clubs and religious leaders with characteristics portrayed in this book are outstanding and not pedophiles, of course. But, one must not be “naïve” to the fact there is always that possibility.
