Publishers 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mom, I Feel Fat: Becoming Your Daughter's Ally in Developing a Healthy Body Image?
Too much religion. Sep 1, 2002
This otherwise promising book relied too heavily on God and religion for the lay reader.
wonderful book on mother-daughter relationships Jun 26, 2002
"Mom I Feel Fat" is a well-written and thoughtful book to help mothers help their daughters improve their self-images. The author is a licensed professional counselor and she focuses on the entire mother daughter relationship. She asks thoughtful and provoking questions and provides stimulating exercises for the reader.
The author believes a mother has to understand her own emotions and behaviors in order to connect with and help her daughter understand hers, so this book is about the transformation of the mother as well as the daughter, which I agree is very necessary.
I would have given this book five stars were it not for the cover (I wish there were a 4 1/2 star rating, which is what I would like to give it.) The cover shows a model-perfect mother daughter pair, awash in flattering lighting. The real mother daughter pair, not so model-perfect are in a tiny picture on the back.
