Fred the Fox Shouts “NO!” is an adult’s guide to speaking to children about sexual abuse prevention. Written by practicing licensed professional counselor Tatiana Matthews, Fred the Fox helps parents and caregivers introduce the concepts of “private parts” and safety with people we know.
Through open communication with the people that love him most, Fred learns he has a strong voice inside and how to use it. With the help of illustrations by Allison Fears, Fred the Fox helps children learn how to recognize and avoid sexual abuse.
The sad truth is that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused at some point in childhood – many by someone they know. Help protect your children by teaching them what to do.

About the Author

Despite the economic advantage of this community, the pattern of victims knowing their offenders and the majority of victims never reporting the abuse remained true.
Through this experience, Tatiana identified the need to increase parent and child dialogue about sexual abuse prevention. Tatiana resides in Dunwoody, GA with her husband, Jim, their two children, Maximus and Luna, and their two Chesapeake Bay retrievers, Beacon and Bay.
