Sandy is 11 an has been in counseling for about six months because of her touching problems. Here's what she has to say:
"I have sexual problems, and I have touched other young kids in wrong ways. Sometimes it is hard for me to stop. I had a lot of sexual problems, and I almost got put in jail for them. I know one thing for sure--I do not want to go to kid's jail. If you are reading this book, then you probably have the same problem I so. So, if you have sexual problems, you getter learn to control it, or you might end up hearing a judge tell you you're going to jail."
