Best Parent Support Book Yet!

As the father of a 21 year old daughter who has suffered from bulimia for ten years, I found Abigail Natenshon's 'When Your Child has an Eating Disorder' to be the most relevant book I have read on how parents can work with their eating disordered child towards wellness. It's positive, workbook style provides practical knowledge, insight and tools to help parents increase their contribution to their child's recovery. It's thorough coverage of the stages of illness and recovery, along with practical advice and helpful exercises, allowed us to see the recovery process more clearly and in greater perspective. This provided great anxiety relief and an increased sense of control. I wish we had found this book earlier in the journey to our daughter's recovery! It is a must read for any parents, family or friends of eating disordered teens.

There is nothing out there more helpful

This book is my daily reference to help guide me through a very difficult time in our lives. There is really nothing out there that is as easy to use, with actual scenarios and responses a parent can apply to many situations. I have also given it to friends who have children with other problems than eating disorders because the book is beneficial to anyone with children that have problems. It guided me through difficult situations and helped educate me to learn to respond in a positive way to benefit my child and myself. It is a must read for any parent of a child with eating disorders!

Beyond informative

After seeing Ms. Natenshon on Oprah to discuss the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, I purchased her book and was so pleased to learn how valuable her approach is! This book is the first book I have seen on this subject that actually helps a parent to understand the importance of being involved with professionals in working to heal eating disorders. The information is clear and guides the reader in developing resources to truly help and not just understand the causes of these eating disorders. Her website is also extremely informative and offers resources to work hand in hand with her book. A must have for anyone trying to overcome the frustrations and helplessness associated with eating disorders and help take action that will make a difference.

when your child has an eating disorder

This is the best book I have read on the subject by far! As the mother of a daughter with an eating disorder, I found this book to be a godsend. The author is clearly very familiar with her subjects, because she seemed to relate to everything I have experienced with my family. Unlike some other authors I've read, Ms. Natenshon is not judgmental in her writing, which I find to be extremely important. I urge everybody interested in this topic to read this book and work through the activities - you will be thankful you did!

Does more than inform. Gives parents guidance.

This book is essential for parents who are truly interested in helping their children overcome eating disorders. The author conveys a sense of truly caring about what happens to children with this disease and to the families of those children. Mrs. Natenshon does more than give advice. She lets parents know that they can play an integral part in helping their children cope and gives parents direction on how to be involved in their children's recoveries.
