In presenting her acclaimed "Sexual Politics of Meat" slide show throughout North America, Carol Adams encountered innumerable conflicted or unhappy young people: "My parents don't understand the choice I have made to become a vegetarian (or vegan)." This is a book to help parents understand. Help My Child Stopped Eating Meat is the first book of its kind to provide a comprehensive parental guide that addresses parent-child conflicts over diet. Its five chapters, with topics arranged alphabetically for easy reference, cover family and emotional issues, nutritional issues, philosophy and peer relationships, and practical issues. The final chapter, "What's Left to Eat," consists of mouth-watering, original recipes. This practical and timely book will be a welcome resource for all parents concerned about the well-being and health of their vegetarian children.

"A very insightful, extremely well written book. This is a must read for anyone facing this predicament."
Very insightful. Richard Carlson, author of Don t Sweat the Small Stuff
When my daughter announced (very dramatically, I might add) at the age of 12 that she was becoming a vegetarian, I had many of the emotional, practical, and conflicting thoughts that Adams so deftly addresses in Help! My Child Stopped Eating Meat! The transition would have been much easier with these two thoughtful books [Help! My Child Stopped Eating Meat! and Living Among Meat Eaters] as our guide As a non-vegetarian, Living Among Meat Eaters gave me a new-found respect for the tribulations that vegetarians go through [it] doesn t preach, but it does tell vegetarians how to wean others to their cause or even entertain them for dinner by introducing vegetarian foods in meat-eater language. Audubon Naturalist News, July/August 2004--Janna Bialek
"Adams offers practical tips for sanely discussing vegetarianism with children, asking them to help plan and prepare meals to include vegetarian choices. The book's alphabetical format makes it an excellent reference for parents Highly recommended for public libraries." -Library Journal
