During the holiday season, many people make the annual trip to gather with their families and share in a special meal. You may notice that a loved one has developed unusual eating habits since the last time you saw her or him.
Starting in infancy, children mimic their parents’ actions, speech and beliefs, whether good or bad. Studies show that the same goes for parents’ stigma about mental health. Parents’ attitudes toward seeking mental health treatment are a factor in their child’s intentions to pursue psychological help (Vogel, et al., 2009). In other words, if you, as a parent, have a negative view about people with mental health concerns, your child is less likely to speak up about their own mental health. Failing to address a child’s mental health may be extremely harmful and the affects may carry on into adulthood.
The start of the school year is quickly approaching and so are tryouts for fall sports teams. However busy this time of year always seems to be for many families, it’s important to take a moment away from the rush of the school year and make sure your student isn’t participating in disordered eating or exercising behavior due to pressure from their peers or athletics.
Sports such as ballet, gymnastics, wrestling, football and others may become centered on your student-athlete’s weight, especially when a championship or scholarship is on the line. When this pressure to be thin manifests, your child’s sport develops into a risk factor which may increase their chances of developing an eating disorder. What is commonly confused by many athletes is the difference between physical fitness and thinness. It’s important to have a conversation with your child and reassure them that a person’s fat content is not the sole measurement of their physical ability or health.
Are a lot of people telling your college-bound child that they’re “going to make so many new friends in college” or “have the best time of their lives”?

Now that summer’s in full swing, your children are probably spending a lot more time playing together or doing other fun activities than they might during the school year. However great this extra bonding time is while it lasts, sibling rivalry can almost always be counted on to sneak its way into your summer plans. Although some sibling rivalry can be expected, is there a point where it can become a cause for concern?

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, hosted by The National Eating Disorder Association, is February 22-28. The week’s theme “I had No Idea” is intended to shine a light on the often overlooked severity of eating disorders and to educate the general public on the signs, causes and treatment options for those who suffer from one. The focus is on the recovery aspects of eating disorders most people had no idea they would feel about after treatment. For instance, many people during treatment realize there are others just like them. Who feel similar feelings, who respond to food in similar ways. This is just an example of one of the many “I had no idea” statements staff he
