According to Jeff Herman, it is currently more important to keep close tabs with what is happening in your children’s life. Parents should aim at ways of keeping their children secure from predators both offline and online. Jeff is an advocate and attorney for victims of sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, and rape. He has valuable advice to parents on how to talk with their children about sexual predators and crimes, and how to be on the lookout for signs of abuse.
Vulnerability increases the chances of how predators manipulate, entice and abuse children. For instance, when naive children are abused sexually, they may not even comprehend they have been abused. Since they do not recognize they have been taken advantage of, they continue to allow the abuse, complying willingly. If they happen to realize what happened, they will be eaten by guilt for what happened to them resulting in ripple and complicated problems.
Since we cannot guarantee their safety 24/7, educating them, having open communication channels, and teaching them how to keep healthy boundaries serves as a way of arming them. Jeff Herman has developed a recognized and unique technique for child forensic interviewing. He is a trainer of professionals from child well-being institutions on assisting sexually abused kids to heal through exposure.
He is determined to air and exposes sexual predator and institutions by breaking the silence and talking about it.

He won $100 million verdict in 2011 for a client who has been abused sexually by a priest. His most recent activity is his representation of many men in sexual harassment lawsuits against Kevin Clash, a former Elmo puppeteer.
