Online Course: Parenting Your Child With An Eating Disorder

essentials course

 ⭐ The essential knowledge you need to parent your child with an eating disorder

 ⭐ How to create a pro-recovery home

⭐ Feel more confident and knowledgeable

 ⭐ What to do and what not to do when your child has an eating disorder

Parents who have kids who have eating disorders often struggle alone. The sense of shame and overwhelm can be intense. I firmly believe that it doesn’t need to be this way, and I don’t want it to be that way for you or your child who is in recovery.

You don’t have to suffer alone. You don’t have to feel like a bad person. If you’re interested and curious, you can learn a lot during your child’s recovery and your whole family can come out stronger and healthier in the end.

Easy? Not really. Worth it? Absolutely.

You Can (Totally) Do This!

I’m so tired of people not talking about eating disorders and not helping parents help their kids. When we stay locked inside of ourselves, we suffer. And when we suffer, our kids suffer.

Parenting is a practice, not a role. It is something best approached with intelligence and creativity, not guilt, shame, and blame. Parenting from an automatic place can send us into shame spirals and keep us locked in unhelpful patterns. But when we learn to bring our wholehearted, grown-up, intelligent selves to parenting, we feel better and can help our kids. You can help your kids.

Find Peace & Make a Difference

Parents can be incredibly helpful in the eating disorder recovery process, but most of us don’t know where to begin, how to proceed, or how best to help our child who has an eating disorder.

The trouble is that we don’t talk about eating disorders enough. There’s so much shame and stigma that we forget that at least 10% of the population either has or had an eating disorder. You are not alone. And I promise that you can handle this.

The Essential Guide to Eating Disorders Online Course was made for you, and my goal in creating it was to help you feel more confident and knowledgeable so you can make a difference.

Nothing is more gut-wrenching than knowing that your child is suffering and that you can help, but still not knowing what you are supposed to do! This is seriously hard work. The stress you’re feeling is intense, and every day that passes can make you feel more desperate.

It’s time to learn new parenting skills that will help you parent more effectively through the eating disorder and recovery. This course will provide you with the information you need to understand the eating disorder, care for yourself and stay strong, and create a family life that is supportive and rewarding for everyone.
