A little about yourself...and how can we help you
I am a mother of three and a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City. During the course of my fourteen years of public service, I have successfully prosecuted hundreds of offenders. My first book “My Body Belongs to Me”, is intended to prevent child sexual abuse by teaching children that their bodies are their own. Written for children three to ten, the overriding message is if someone touches a child inappropriately, they should tell a parent or teacher right away.

In April 2011, I had the pleasure of appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss what motivated me to write My Body Belongs to Me. See video clip below.

In October 2006, I launched to support parents and their children. is the first online nanny reporting service that works to keep children safe by enabling parents to receive positive or negative feedback on their child’s caregiver via a license plate attached to the child’s stroller.

Outside the courtroom, my fondness for writing led me to create, where I pen personalized pieces for all occasions.

As a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City for the past sixteen years and a prevention specialist, I have heard all the reasons why parents don’t discuss child sexual abuse prevention with their children. I have heard them so often that I can recite them by heart. In honor of April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month, I decided it would be a good idea to memorialize the top 10 reasons why parents choose not to discuss the subject.

I have heard them all.  I have heard all the reasons why parents don’t discuss child sexual abuse prevention with their children.  I have heard them so often that I can recite them by heart.  As the new year approaches, I decided it would be a good idea to memorialize the top 10 reasons for not discussing the subject.  I invite you to add any that may have been omitted.

Hi Jill

Thank you very much!   I am hoping to promote my Pink Zebra and make a career out of it.  I just lost my job after 20 years and would like to find something to do at home so I can spend more time with my family and my grandchildren.

Thank you
