Details: Product Description This groundbreaking book gives clear evidence that children gain too much weight because of how, not what they are fed. Satter's calming, practical and carefully documented voice empowers readers to feed well, parent well, and let children grow up to get bodies that are right for them. Packed with Satter's ever-popular feeding stories, Your Child's Weight offers clear guidance for professionals as well as parents. Review Excellent resource for parents not only concerned about weight but for picky eaters as well — Dietitian My go-to as a child psychologist working with parents with mealtime conflict. — Child psychologist This should be required reading for all doctors and parents, even if a child does not have a huge weight issue. — Pediatrician It sheds light on why so many children have eating disorders earlier in life. — Eating disorders specialist Satter's work could revolutionize health in our generation. — University professor This book has made an enormous difference in my child's life. — Parent I cannot recommend this book highly enough. We have been following the basic principles in this book for three years, when my child first started gaining weight quickly as a preschooler. At first the methods can be scary and counter-intuitive (i.e., let your kid eat as much as they want at dinner time!) Now, three years later, my child has slimmed down naturally, without any type of dietary restrictions, and is no longer preoccupied with food. — Parent From the Back Cover If your goal is to have a slim child, you are looking for the magic diet and ready to do whatever it takes to achieve that, this is not the book for you. On the other hand, if you are willing to stow your agenda about your childs size and shape, shoulder your responsibilities with respect to feeding and parenting and raise your child to get the body that is right for them, read on. If, in fact, like a lot of parents you were reluctant to pick this book up because you dread even entertaining the thought that your child might have a weight problem and that you have to do something about it, with all the misery that entails, this is the book for you. About the Author Early in her 40 years’ endeavors as a parent, feeding expert, and family therapist, Ellyn Satter concluded that trying to get children to eat and weigh less does more harm than good. Children become whining food sneaks, siblings become spying tattletales, parents become police officers, and children get fatter, not thinner. In Your Child’s Weight, Satter considers babies through adolescents and shares her evidence- and experience-based discoveries about what does work. Satter is the internationally acclaimed author of best-selling books including Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family and Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense.
