    Give him a good flogging if he doesn't eat his broccoli.  Tried and true method.

    Hi Alex45,
    It seems one of the hardest jobs we have as parents is when to recognize we're out of our league and when to call in experts. Eating disorders are classified as Mental Disorders and absolutely require treatment by a professional. The first step is to get your child to the doctor and start the ball rolling to a referral to a specialist.
    The issues surrounding eating behaviors are deep and complicated. It's not just a behavior you can demand your childs stop ... or else. It's a sickness. And deserves medical attention.
    I wish you success. Please keep us here on HP posted. MM

    it todays society its becoming more and more of a problem ... i think you just have to explain to them that what on the outside doesnt matter ... relationships based on the superficial do not last ... but at the same time you shoudl show them how they can follow a proper diet eat healthy and exercise to have a healthy body ...

    the best thing to remember about eating is that we eat to fuel the body, the body needs the right foods to function properly. Therefore over eating or not eating enough is denying the body what it needs to function correctly.

    Please tell your child that unhealthy eatting habits will cause permanent damage to her/his body.  A healthy diet and regular exercise are the only way to obtain a PERMANENT body that she'll be happy with.  Tell her to remember that everything is okay in moderation.  If she starves herself of the things she wants, she'll indulge later.
