How A Mother Helps Children with Anorexia

    How A Mother Helps Children with Anorexia

    If you have a child with an eating disorder, you need to talk to someone you can trust. Your little girl is sick and you are afraid. So I want you to imagine you have a cup of coffee with your most trusted friends. He sat across the kitchen table and you have the heart to speak from the heart.

    You told me about an appointment with your pediatrician yesterday, and tearfully told her to tell when you are anorexic. You have your suspicions, but have confirmed they scare you. All the horror stories you've heard about anorexia already crossed your mind and you are on the verge of panic. What may be the best, most trusted friends say to you?

    You are not a bad mother and it's not your fault. By the time they feel empty words, but your friend is right. He also can tell you that your child needs you to be strong now and focus on helping him recover, rather than on feelings of guilt and failure. He would be right about that too.

    Suppose a friend has some experience with eating disorders. He'll tell you one of the most important thing you can do to help your daughter to have the right frame of mind. You must be firm about her eating disorder behaviors; not angry or provocative, the company. For example, when he would not eat, you are clearly and unequivocally expressed hope and you expect them to follow.

    At times it does not matter how you feel, it matters what you say and do. The little girl you need to know there are some things in the recovery process is non-negotiable. Remember, you are a parent, and he was a sick little girl you are. When he was sick in other ways, you do whatever needs to be done, no matter what it takes. Eating disorders are no different.

    When you talk to him about what you expect, he needs to hear the tone of your voice, look in your eyes and feel in your body language. It's like you is a tree whose roots go down so deep into the soil, the worst storm can not deprive you. He needs to know you will not be affected by anger, whining, crying or trying to negotiate.

    There are actually only a small list of non-negotiable items that you first start out. He ate what you dish out and set before him, if he is a cleansing and then he sits in your view for an hour after she eats, if he is an over-exercising her exercise only one-half hours a day, and he attended all appointments are necessary, including doctors, therapists, and nutritionists.

    You see your friend like he was crazy. It may be a small list but you tell your friends is the very thing you can not get your child to do so, and if you can do all things then you will not need a therapist and a nutritionist! He agrees with you and tell you that is why you need help and to get the help you need to save the life of your daughter.

    You're still afraid, but at least now you know where to start and what that might look like to get in touch with your daughter. You also know that you must get a lot tighter in your mind, and for the sake of your daughter you decide to do anything to be that the tree did not move that can not be uprooted. You pick up the phone and dialed the number of therapists pediatrician gave you yesterday.
