I could easily let my son’s eating disorder consume me (pardon the pun). I could easily let it define me. However, I refuse to give it that much power. Yes, my son’s eating disorder is forever a part of the fabric of my motherhood. But, I can control how I manage my thoughts and feelings.

Treatment is very hard work, and not just for the person with the eating disorder.

Parenting itself is a challenging job, and parenting a child with an eating disorder takes the job requirements to a whole new level. It frequently requires caregivers to parent in a different way than they typically have with their child, resulting in strict boundaries, use of consequences and managing frequent conflict or disagreements.
