Your Dieting Daughter: Is She Dying for Attention? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book focuses on the essentials of nutrition, offering clear guidelines for healthy eating and dispelling many of the myths promoted by the diet industry. A concise and informative review of the most popular diet programs helps set the record straight on what's behind all of those promotional campaigns to which adolescent (and younger) girls are regularly exposed. The goal here is to help parents understand the kinds of pressure their daughters are under and to provide them with the necessary knowledge to work with their daughters - rather than against them - in forming a strong, positive, and clear sense of self.

Book News Annotation:

A therapist and former anorexic herself, author Carolyn Costin provides a clear and authoritative guide for parents, particularly mothers, who wish to help their daughters deal with issues concerning appearance and self-image, whether they are severely over- or underweight or inappropriately obsessed with their weight.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
