Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents: 7 Ways to Stop the Worry Cycle and Raise Courageous and Independent Children

This is a really helpful book for parents whose kids live with anxiety. Although it's not specifically about eating, food, and body anxiety, the concept remains steady regardless of the particular source of anxiety. In short, parents need to manage their own anxiety first before they can help their kids. This provides a step-by-step process for helping kids with anxiety based on the premise that everything we've been doing has been well-intentioned, but if it's not working, it's time to try something else. Beware of some diet culture talk, including several pages in a row discussing a story of weight loss. We completely skipped those pages and the book still had value.
