Publisher's Description

Never before have our daughters been more concerned and obsessed with the concept of being "fat." From kindergarten on up, girls worry about the size of their stomachs, backsides, and thighs, and even the youngest experiment with dieting and exercise. Much has been written to girls on the challenges they face with regard to body image. But where can a mother turn for advice on how to proactively parent a daughter struggling with--or soon to confront--these insecurities?

You can make a difference.

Whether your daughter is 8 or 16, Mom, I Feel Fat! will help you understand her, the body image issues she will face--from self-esteem to eating disorders--and yourself. Most of all, you'll be encouraged to use the inevitable questions and challenges regarding body image and eating choices to prevent crisis and to strengthen your relationship with your daughter and with God.

INCLUDES PRACTICAL EXERCISES AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING QUESTIONS
FOR MOM ALONE--AND FOR MOTHER AND DAUGHTER TOGETHER.

Editorial Reviews

"Sharon Hersh has written a sensitive, thoughtful, and extremely valuable resource for mothers of girls. Her encouragement to love our daughters as God loves us, have faith in our mother's heart, and be real with our daughters is very wise. This book will help us raise young women with healthy body image and self-esteem and create a lifetime mother-daughter bond."
--Sandy Richardson Executive Director of The Remuda Foundation
and the author of Soul Hunger

"Mom, I Feel Fat! is timely, culturally informed, realistic, and Biblically based. This book will open the lines of mother-daughter communication on issues that our daughters are literally dying to talk about."
--Walt Mueller, Founder and President, The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

"Finally, a book that says out loud what most Moms worry about in secret! This book is not only full of advice on eating disorders but it also has great questions to spark deeper conversations between any mother and daughter."
--Susan Alexander Yates, bestselling author of several books including
And Then I Had Teenagers: Encouragement for Parents of Teens and Preteens

"This well-written book is not a formula for an easy fix to the complex struggles of disordered eating, but an honest, refreshing, and practical resource for families struggling to overcome a serious challenge to the health of young women. Anyone who cares about the plight of young women today will benefit from reading Mom, I Feel Fat! I highly recommend it to parents, adolescent girls, youth workers, and teachers?in short, to anyone in a place of influence."
--Brett Andrews, National Training Director of Youth for Christ Canada, author of thesis Preparing Leaders for the Evangelism of Youth
