How to Raise an Eating Disorder-Free Child
Date:4/27/2009

Leading eating disorder specialist Dr. Stacey Rosenfeld explains how to recognize the signs and what to do about it.

New York, NY (Vocus) April 27, 2009 -- With the incidence of disordered eating continuing to skyrocket among girls as young as elementary school age, being a psychologically savvy parent can help significantly decrease the chances that your child will developing a clinical eating disorder, says New York City based psychologist and eating disorder specialist Dr. Stacey Rosenfeld.

"I have adult clients who ask me about how to prevent their daughters from developing problematic eating behaviors. While eating disorders have genetic components and are influenced by peer groups and media exposure, there are concrete ways parents can help at home in order to promote healthy eating and body image for their children. Kids are very smart and they pick up on their parents' relationship with their own bodies and with food," Dr. Rosenfeld explains.

Dr. Rosenfeld's advice for parents:

  • Throw out your scale and stop weighing yourself. Your child sees everything you do and seeing you weigh yourself has a significant impact on her perception of weight and body.
  • Limit her access to television, magazines, and other places where unrealistic images of how girls and women should look, are often presented.
  • Talk about foods with regard to how they can nourish her body, rather than their effects on her weight. Focus on health, not on calories, fats, or carbohydrates.
  • Encourage physical activity
