“What would happen if you really did get as fat as an elephant?” Kim’s mother asks her daughter, whose Anorexia has rendered her stick-thin. Kim’s fear to gain weight is even bigger than her fear of death. “What does fat mean to you?” Kim’s mother asks a lot of open and investigatory questions. Kim slowly starts to realise that the illness she is clamping onto so tightly does not serve her at all. This book gives answers to pressing questions such as: What should I do if my daughter does not want to eat? How should I react when she starts to binge and purge? What should I do when I suspect my child is lying and manipulating? How do I survive through this difficult period myself? How do I break through this vicious circle? What helps and what does not? Where can I find professional help?
