Why does my nine-year-old son want six-pack abs?

How can I tell if my child has an eating disorder?

Hands-on tips and activities, real questions and answers, helpfulInternet resources, and warning signs of dangerous behavior make this book the ultimate body image guide for parents of kids of all ages.
