Lorsqu?une séparation ou un divorce bouleverse la vie familiale, L?essentiel pour les parents est de garder les besoins et bien-être de leur enfant au c?ur de leurs préoccupations, même s?il grandit dans deux univers distincts, en alternant d?une maison à l?autre. Qu?il soit qualifié de garde partagée, de résidence alternée paritaire ou d?hébergement égalitaire, ce phénomène d?alternance est de plus en plus répandu. S?il est une norme pour certains et une obligation pour d?autres, il reste une solution pour plusieurs.

Abstract
Outlining the findings of Dr. Michael Strober's original research--that there are three distinct stages of eating disorders--this book helps parents detect the severity of a child's weight issues and helps them steer her clear of--or maneuver herself off--a slippery slope that could lead to Anorexia Nervosa. Offering guidance on how to talk about weight and eating in ways that won't alienate the child in question, it also provides parents with the tools to help them cope with the emotional issues that are feeding their child's obsession with their weight. No matter where a child rests on the continuum of eating behaviors, this book is a useful aid for parents intent on keeping their children emotionally and physically healthy in a world of unprecedented pressures.
