GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — The rules many parents hear and use to keep predators away from their children — talking to kids about “stranger danger,” telling them about “good touch, bad touch” and instructing children to say “no” and go tell — aren't working, and on Monday, a group of adults heard it from the mouths of child molesters themselves.

The talk, sponsored by the Association for Child Abuse Prevention, was led by Cory Jewell Jensen, the co-director of the Center for Behavioral Intervention in Beaverton, Ore. Jensen has worked with child molesters and their families for more than 30 years, and her talk was originally intended for members of law enforcement.
