3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By pediatrician on November 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is full of extremely useful advice for any parent, but particularly for parents of adolescents and pre-adolescents with any kind of eating disturbance. If you've noticed your daughter or son eating less, noticed any unusual habits around eating, this book can help you figure out if there's something wrong and what you should do. These authors obviously know what they're talking about and know how to speak to parents on their level, not above or below. They use lots of examples of kids in all sorts of situations, which made their descriptions really easy to follow. This is an easy read, sometimes entertaining but always really informative, and really, really helpful for a worried parent who's at a loss for what to do with their child.

Format: Paperback
By writing about situtations parents and kids working through issues around reading disorders experience, and then explaining ways the family could problem-solve, this book gently informs about the hard to define struggle of eating disorders. It's well written, with an easy-to-read flow.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By ballet lover on November 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
this book is so so so helpful-- we thought an eating disorder could only happen in someone who looks emaciated and sick, and never eats anything, but when we were confronted with something more than 'picky eating' but less than what we imagined actual eds to be, we checked this book out and it helped immensely. eds happen in the best kids and even in kids who still look pretty healthy--especially when they're growing, according to this book, it can be hard to tell just by looking at someone if they have a problem. also if someone just eats less, but still eats, they can still have anorexia. i highly recommend this book for clearing up what eds actually are, and who can help you-- they talk about what you can do but the bottom line is you have to seek help outside of the family sometimes, as much as you want to be able to "fix it" parents just can't do everything and sometimes someone else knows better than you how to help your kids. nutritionists, therapists, doctors-- they can all be a really good help getting your kids back on track. but this book is such a blessing for parents who don't know whether they've got a problem on their hands or not, and if they do, what to do. thank you to the authors for your wonderful advice!

I wish I had found this earlier. The book is well, written, easy to read and addresses nearly all aspects of an eating disorder..... Early stages to Recovery. I highly recommend to all and to professionals, for their use and to help parents understand what is really happening and some ways in which they can help
