Very helpful in getting over that we (parents) are to blame for eating disorders.
A MN Dad
This book is a reading must for those dealing with family members and/or loved ones with eating disorders.

This book was uplifting, full of hope, even though she used many true stories to illustrate her points.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I HIGHLY recommend this book! As the parent of someone who has had an eating disorder for many years, I've read my share of books on this topic. One of my frustrations is how to tell those I'm close to what it's like to go through this experience. There have been many books with great stuff, but I was always afraid that my loved ones would think that our experience was exactly the same or assume we couldn't possibly be going through the horrors described by a particular writer. This book solves that frustration since each story in here had something in common with our story and the volume of very challenging accounts puts to rest the notion that our situation couldn't really be that bad.

This is the perfect arrangement for a book on this topic--it shares so many different experiences, which alone provides comfort for those managing a disease which fosters so much isolation and shares resources, many of which I was not familiar with - even after all these years. It gives accounts from the perspective of mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, those who have recovered and those still struggling, whether they be male or female.

I have found this disease to be emotionally and physically exhausting and finding so much of what I want in one book was a miracle. I just hope Becky Henry doesn't stop with this one.

I have picked it up just to reread parts, as well as for reference reasons many times. By the way, when I finished it, I immediately ordered three more copies, because my copy isn't ever leaving my house.

Format: Paperback
In "Just Tell her To Stop" Becky offers the rare opportunity to read about the very personal, rarely shared and often heart-wrenching experiences of families/friends that have had to deal with a loved one's eating disorder. It is a must-read for parents, friends, relatives, ect...who are affected by a loved-one's eating disorder. Others have been down the road and their testimonies recorded in Becky's book can offer support and encouragement to those in the midst of the battle or to those who want a deeper understanding of the battle (pastors, youth group leaders, teachers, doctors, therapists, etc) so they can be more supportive. Eating disorders have been misunderstood and disregarded for way too long. They are deadly, they are diseases and they are on the rise in both boys and girls. This compilation of very personal and real stories should be read by every adult, in my opinion. Had it been available three years ago, it may have educated me enough to see the red flags in my own loved one's struggle before it got life threatening. It's TIME TO TALK ABOUT IT!!! Thanks Becky!

I had the opportunity to read this book. It is really terrific and so well written.

My daughter is in recovery from anorexia.

I have bought so many books on the subject of eating disorders, but what I like about this one was that it offered something different.

It's like no other book that I read.

Typically, we have the 'clinical books' and then the books written by the sufferers detailing their experiences.

Becky Henry was able to weave her fine research with the experiences and stories. The research information was not overwhelming - just enough. The stories were great!

The experiences, stories and tips from the parents were wonderful.

I loved all the tips, which are so very useful to parents and other family members and the variety of stories.

This is a wonderful resource for parents and loved ones of people with eating disorders.

This book is a gift to parents.

~ Cathy Vee, Parent

Format: Paperback
Just Tell Her to Stop does a great job of illustrating the tornado-like effect that EDs have on families. I particularly love the chapter on sibling stories. My personal experience with having a sister with bulimia-was that it could never be described simply. This chapter really captures the wide range of emotions siblings go through, through the voices of 3 very different sibling perspectives. I found all 3 of them relatable in different ways. So glad someone is helping give a voice to the families, as those are often silenced or pushed aside when ED is often naturally the main focus. Thanks Becky!

"You fought and won to get your traumatized brain back, then fought to win your joy back and have bravely marched out of the dark forest of eating disorder heart break. Then, armed with knowledge, experience and hindsight, you turned around and went right back in, to bring the rest of the families lost in the darkness out into the sunshine again. I'm so proud of you. If we, as your family had this book to guide us back when you were lost in the forest, we would have been more equipped to walk with you through the nightmare." - Your Sister, Karen

Format: Paperback
Becky Henry has done a great service by providing this resource for those who are enmeshed in the confusing and terrifying world of eating disorders--the families grappling within this unfamiliar territory to save their loved ones--and the health care providers who are helping to create the pathways to healing.

Becky has given a platform to families to share their triumphs and tragedies and, most important, the lessons they have learned as they care for loved ones with eating disorders. Perhaps most helpful is the distilled advice passed on by these brave "unwilling experts"--practical advice about how to love the sick child while hating and fighting the illness that causes so much havoc, how to do damage control when family or friends make unhelpful or triggering comments, how to deal with the myriad appointments, paperwork and insurers, while at the same time caring for yourself, the care-giver who is also traumatized by the experience.

These peeks through the windows and behind the doors of families dealing with eating disorders will help other families know they are not alone in their confusion and frustration, and will help health care providers understand what happens within the homes and lives of their patients and their families.
