Ways to prevent eating disorders in your child

I am so impressed by the love and devotion of parents who bring their children into my office to help them deal with their eating disorder struggles. It is incredibly painful to watch your child suffer, but these parents try every day to understand their kids, to support them, and to walk with them through the emotional roller coaster of their disorder. There is hope for change for these children, but my hope would be that parents never have to walk down this road in the first place. ANRED has a helpful article with tips for prevent eating disorders in children. I will be expanding on some of these points in upcoming blog posts, but remember that the good news is that parents can be proactive in creating a home environment  that fosters healthy esteem which will make their children less susceptible to eating disorders. The article discusses some of these prevention techniques.
