Summary
In a society where eating disorders are rampant, it often takes special awareness and vigilance to raise children who will come to the dinner table free of the modern food-related phobias: fear of being fat, fear of excess calories, and obsession with physical appearance. Emphasizing a nutritional approach to treatment, including early intervention and the importance of establishing healthy attitudes toward food at a young age, The Parent's Guide to Childhood Eating Disorders will prove to parents that effective solutions can begin in the home with a reasonable investment of time, effort, and love. As an expert in eating disorders, a former anorexic, and the mother of two teenagers, Dr. Marcia Herrin speaks with rare authority and understanding. This important new addition to the literature is a warm, accessible guide that takes readers step-by-step through the healing journey Dr. Herrin makes with each of her patients
