About this item

An urgently needed manual to help parents and kids understand, together, the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related to eating and exercise—and get to the underlying causes of overeating

From pediatricians’ offices to the White House, people are worried about childhood obesity—perhaps parents most of all. Even with information on diet and exercise, many parents feel powerless to help their children combat weight gain. That’s why this book goes beyond simple nutrition tips, to the root of the matter: The mind.
As a therapist, Dr. Michelle P. Maidenberg knows that, when children and teens overeat and under-exercise, mental and emotional hurdles are often the key. Every child is different, so there’s no silver bullet, but there are useful strategies. Free Your Child from Overeating presents over 50 of them: practicing “eating with intention,” identifying triggers that prompt overeating (from “I failed that test—I’ll cheer up with chocolate” to “I aced that test—I deserve a treat!”), and more.
By understanding their children’s feelings, personalities, and experiences, parents can start the conversation and help them learn to manage their weight—once and for all. It’s mind over muffin!
