Your Child's Weight: Helping Without Harming (Birth through Adolescence), Kelcy Press, 2005). This groundbreaking new book by renowned childhood feeding expert Ellyn Satter makes abundantly clear that focusing on the how rather than the what of feeding represents the only realistic and humane way of approaching child overweight. Culled from Satter's years of clinical practice. Your Child's Weight gives details of real-life experiences about parents' and children's pain and triumph as they grapple with weight management. Those stories and Satter's wise and practical advice challenge and encourage parents to raise healthy children with high self-esteem—whatever their size and shape. Satter's readable and accessible style of combining scientific evidence and practical experience makes this a cross-over book like her previous best-sellers, Child of Mine: Feeding Your Child With Love and Good Sense, Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family, and How to Get Your Kid to Eat…But Not Too Much.
