Reseña del editor
IS YOUR CHILD AT HIGH RISK?
Who are these children without a conscience? They are children who cannot trust, children who cannot love, children who will not be loved. They grow up to be charmers, con artists, amoral entrepreneurs, thieves, drug users, pathological liars, and worst of all: psychopathic killers . . . and they are often the product of even the best-intentioned families.
For every parent of a “difficult” child, working parents, single parents, and adoptive parents, here is a book that addresses one of our society’s greatest problems. High Risk offers sobering case histories an invaluable suggestions for raising healthy children and protecting ourselves from the “trust bandits” who would steal our love, our money—our very lives. In High Risk you will learn how to:
• Recognize character-disturbed children and adults
• Prevent the development of antisocial behavior
• Choose healthy child-care and school environments
• Find the best professional help if your child is at risk
• Minimize the trauma of adoption and foster care
• Protect yourself from exploitative relationships in both your business and personal life
• And much more.
Foreword by Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder

This dissertation is written by Dr Maggid who was featured in the original HBO documentary, "Child of Rage"; a stunning account of how abuse (including neglect) harms core issues in later adult years of the neglected, abused child..
Without having bonded with parents or guardians, the child fails to mature emotionally, which results in sociopathic narcissism and varying levels of calloused emotional responses.
A large percentage of prisoners are sociopaths and an even larger percentage were diagnosed once arrested and incarcerated, because these individuals do not lend themselves voluntarily to analysis and diagnosis. There modis-operandi is to appear normal, in spite of their maladjustament.
Despite the age of the material, I found the content a pioneering study that remains uniquely a vital addition to one's library.
I have worked with the population of “young people” since the latter eighties until present time as an educator.
I believe this book is very relevant for understanding the conscience of the young person especially for those that are today in denial and believe that “kiddos” are all misunderstood due to environment and social settings.
Now that I am in my senior year as I reflect on a number of books that I feel are relevant to add to my personal collection to pass on to another generation this is one.
I recommended this book to those who are seeking an understanding of what the nature of many young people are today.
I did the best I could as a single mother parent, and God in His mysterious ways, gave me a chance to turn this experience into something good. I got to raise my son's daughter from the time she was 4 months old until she graduated from high school. I was able to create a bond that her father had lost out on until he turned 3, but I was able to take all the knowledge of this book and in return, was able to raise such a wonderful grandchild.
