A friend of mine asked me why I wanted to write a book on how parents could manage the eating disorders in teenage concerns and the different teenager health concerns, especially when a child stops eating.
She wanted to know whether I was speaking from real life, and experiences which I had seen in my own family, and I told her that I was lucky that anorexia and bulimia never were thought of, in matters of eating, especially when the teenagers knew that the family members were all hearty eaters, and eating disorders was something up with which the elders would not put, physically, mentally, and even psychologically!
But then you are going to be surprised to know that 3% of the parents, especially in European countries, – France predominant - where everybody is very particular about the latest
psychological trend of body image, their children suffer from bulimia and anorexia. Princess Di suffered from it, because subconsciously she had reached a stage of what is the use of my being a princess, when my husband could not care less about me. You may not believe it, but this is the reason why a large number of women out there subconsciously have a death wish, just because they have lost someone near and dear, emotionally, physically, and even spiritually.
That is why a number of parents may not believe it or not, but more than 2% of adolescents suffer from some sort of eating disorder, which is called anorexia or bulimia. So as a concerned parent, how are you going to manage a child not eating at all, a child deciding that he does not want to eat anything, a child who has stopped eating a healthy, nourishing diet or any other factor, which prevents a growing child from eating a healthy diet and growing up into an physically, mentally and emotionally strong adult who is healthy, strong, fit, and has no eating disorders at all.
But you are going to say, hey, what is this, I can understand a child suffering physically. If he is starving himself, but what has “mentally and emotionally” to do with a child’s health, especially when he is not eating properly?
