Overview

Eating disorders affect not only those afflicted, but spouses, partners, children, family and friends. Eating disorders often come from a combination of psychological, interpersonal and social environments. The aim of this book is to create a dialogue between adults and children and to help children understand why their loved one with an eating disorder is behaving in certain ways. Because oftentimes people with eating disorders feel like they are different from others, they need loving, caring and compassionate people around them. This book is meant to address children's questions in a caring and truthful fashion. By opening up lines of communication, it is hoped that this book will empower not only children but family members to deal with this debilitating condition.
