With the science of neurobiology to guide us, parents can respond differently and a lot more compassionately and effectively when eating disorder behaviors show up in highly sensitive and/or neurodivergent kids. Mainly, instead of trying to stop the behaviors by addressing the rational brain, we first soothe the unconscious nervous system that is responding to a perceived threat. By co-regulating with a dysregulated child, parents help kids tolerate how they feel without reaching for eating disorder behaviors.

Over time, the parent-led practice of co-regulating, combined with therapy and nutritional treatment, will support your child in developing a healthier emotional regulation baseline as well as stronger skills for self-regulation.

To create this book, I’ve taken the last three decades of research in neurobiology and applied it to co-regulating with a child who is struggling with eating disorder behaviors. My trusted guides include Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Mona Delahooke, whose writing has enlightened me and allowed me to see how parents’ behavior shapes kids’ behavior.

We have so much influence over how our kids feel, and I want all of us to unlock this influence and start making a positive difference in kids’ nutrition, mental and physical health, and the sacred relationship between food and body.
