One of the challenges of finding out your child has – or might have – an eating disorder is that you cannot stop time. Life often has to continue. You spend every day worrying about your child’s mental and physical health, but time will continue to pass, and you may find yourself in a situation where your child is on their way back to school with new teachers, new notebooks, and an untreated eating disorder.
But there’s a problem: your child is not going to grow out of their eating disorder, and it’s not going to go away on its own. School is important, but when your child is in school, they have even less supervision, more social pressures, and less time in the day for you to give them the care they need. In addition, eating disorders will affect your child’s ability to focus, and their academics may struggle as a result.
That is why the time to proactively and thoroughly address your child’s eating disorder is not “soon” or “someday” or “when you find someone that can help.” The time to address your child’s eating disorder is now.
