Abstract
Focusing on the family, this book teaches parents how to examine and understand their family’s approach to food and body-image issues and its effect on their child’s behavior. Parents learn to identify an eating disorder early, to establish healthy attitudes toward food at a young age, and to intervene in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way. The authors concentrate on teens, the age group most often affected by eating disorders, as well as younger children. Individual chapters cover boys at risk, relapse training, dealing with friends, school, and summer camp, and much more. The book includes an appendix and sections on further reading, organizations and websites, residential and hospital programs, and references.

Abstract
Everyone knows that going to the doctor can be a little scary. For a small child who may not understand why being poked, prodded, and jabbed with a needle is necessary, the prospect is especially daunting. In this book, Angus the dog takes young readers by the hand and guides them through a visit to the doctor's office. Each two-page spread asks a question: "Why do I have to go to the doctor?" "Why does the doctor push down on my tummy?" "What's a shot?" "Do I need one?" and more, each question anticipating the next. Then Angus answers each question.
