ok, so I've been reading in the community for hours, learning what I can about ED. I plan to have another conversation with my 15 yo daughter who is struggling with some high school social issues; conflicts with friends, no boyfriend, inability to clearly communicate whats bothering her so it can be dealt with etc.which are leading to frustration, depression, and some restrictive eating tendencies. I am wanting to help her sidestep becoming pulled into an ED. I have already voiced my concerns previously. Now I want to show her what anorexia looks like- symptoms, etc , and I want to show her how deceptive the control piece is, and how difficult to shake it the longer she waits. I've bookmarked some of the discussion posts to show her. Help me with how to approach this conversation so she will be more receptive; what to say, and maybe more importantly, what NOT to say. Thanks so much for your help.
