Call in to speak with the host
Tonight's special guest is Diane Roblin-Lee from Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada, a returning NAASCA family member, an activist and author. Diane's son was molested by his grandfather. "Years later," she explains, "I discovered my husband (of 38 years) to be a child molester, one of the victims being my granddaughter. It was horrendous, but I was determined not to let the shattering of my precious family be for naught." Diane’s husband was convicted of child molestation and went to prison. She obtained a divorce and immersed herself in researching how parents, grandparents, churches and organizations could protect the children in their care from child sexual abuse. She wondered how a young mom could ever be expected to recognize a predator – if she could live with one for 38 years and not know it. She was determined not to allow the shattering of her family to happen for nothing, but to use her hard-won insights to help other children and families to be protected from the horrific fallout from child-sexual abuse. Diane says, "The sad thing is that, until people's lives have been touched by abuse, not many understand how to keep their kids safe or how critical it is to be educated." Her nine-book Predator-Proof Your Family series (first book "What's the Fuss?") is an attempt to explain these things. Diane has updated the booklets with all the latest information. The booklets are now being used as resources in over 7,500 organizations, churches, and schools through ‘Plan to Protect,’ an international organization run by Melodie Bissell, that puts protocols in place to protect children and vulnerable adults.
