Overview

Help for parents that tackles the real causes of childhood obesity and offers practical solutions. Why Can't My Child Stop Eating examines the emotional roots of overeating and addresses the social, emotional, and physical problems of these children and their families.

With the ever-growing childhood obesity problem, the audience for this book continues to develop. Why Can’t My Child Stop Eating? provides parents with specific activities to assist in addressing and healing the emotional aspects of obesity. Currently there is no book on the market that provides assistance in coping with the emotional issues of obesity that offers an emotional recovery plan for children.

Debbie Danowski, PhD, is co-author of the previously published Why Can't I Stop Eating? (Hazelden Publishing, 2000), in which she outlined her personal physical, emotional, and spiritual food addiction recovery program that resulted in her losing more than 150 pounds over seventeen years ago. She is a regular guest on both national and international radio programs. Why Can't I Stop Eating? was Hazelden's best-selling trade book in the summer of 2000. The book is currently in its third printing.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In her new book, Dr. Danowski, who conquered her own obesity, states the obvious: the key to overcoming a child's obesity is the initiation of lifestyle changes at home for every member of the family.The basic suggestions cover the gamut of healthy eating, healthy exercise, less sedentary time, and psychologically balanced thoughts about food itself, with parents always at the helm of every new routine. Danowski suggests that a child's orientation to food will change naturally when parents make changes for themselves first. The author goes so far as to suggest banning food-related celebrations and food rewards for good behavior, which she argues are a logical extension of culturally-supported but emotionally and psychologically unhealthy attitudes about food. The author suggests arts and crafts exercises and other routine changes to family activities designed to strengthen the family unit.The goal: creating and understanding positive emotions without the mention or use of food. The author's own extreme approach to healthy eating when shared takes away from her otherwise practical advice. This book will be of value to parents looking for guidance in addressing childhood obesity as an entire family. (June)
