I found this book extremely helpful and very encouraging. The author's personal story is one every mother can relate to and admire. I have read many books to try and help my overweight child, but I have always felt as though he was being isolated and deprived. The difference with this book is that it emphasizes the participation of the whole family to work together as a team toward the goal of better nutrition and physical fitness. This makes a lot of sense to me and has been great for our family. The CD and printable tools are very informative easy to use. There were a few quirks using it on my Mac system, but they seem to be fixed now. I think the printable shopping lists are the greatest! Thank you Mrs. Alexander for telling your story and developing this much needed program.

I've been struggling with this issue with my 12-year-old son for a couple of years. Trying different techniques and always feeling frustrated that he didn't take ownership of his weight problem. What a wake up call it was to understand that it was me who was unwilling to take owneship for my part. When you read this book you can't help but be inspired and motivated to make the changes in your own behavior that will truely help your child. My son has lost nearly 10 lbs and the comments from his coaches and team mates this year in Little League have completely changed his perception and attitude about himself. As a parent, you just want your child to be happy. To see his self esteem soar has been amazing. If you've tried diets, programs, or tactics to get your kid to change, you need to read this book to understand how YOU must change.
