Internet Resource: New Info on Eating Disorders

This December 2006 news release discusses two studies about childhood eating disorders, one that "confirm(s) that pro-eating disorder Web sites may promote dangerous behaviors in adolescents with eating disorders" and another that "indicates that pre-teens with eating disorders tend to lose weight more quickly than adolescents with the condition and weigh comparatively less at diagnosis." Includes links to fact sheets about eating disorders. From the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. (Copyright © 2006, Librarians' Internet Index)

Trying to help when someone doesn't think he or she needs it can be hard. As hard as it might be, getting the professional assistance needed, even if your child resists, is the best help you can give as a parent. Approach your child in a loving, supportive, and non-threatening way when your child feels comfortable and relaxed and there are no distractions.
