I am often asked what to do by parents who are at the end of their patience and strength:
“How do I sit and watch my daughter/son starve themselves?”
“How do I watch her/him binge on food I know that they really don’t want or need knowing that they will purge it afterwards?”
“My friends tell me that they wouldn't let their child do this, how do I prevent it? Am I supposed to push food into their mouths?”
“My friends say that I should lock the pantry and the fridge. How can I do that? What about the rest of the family?”
“He/she blames me, is it my fault? What have I done wrong?”
“My other children don’t behave in this way, why does she/he?”
“The rest of the family are fed up and angry. They say that the eating disorder rules our lives, how we live, where we holiday and what we do together as a family……. and it does. What can I do about that?”
These are just some of the questions that I am asked by exhausted and despairing parents.
We can arrange either one or two day seminars in Spain or the UK according to demand.
