Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Parents Bullying Kids About Weight

I just read a New York Times article that made me very sad. It’s all about parent’s “bullying” comments about their kid’s weight…and the  impact that really has on a child.

I was one of those kids whose Mom was always commenting on what I should and shouldn’t be eating and on how I needed to lose weight. 

Were you one of those kids?

Or…doing some consciousness raising here…have you ever been one of those parents, consciously or unconsciously?

If so…never too late to start the healing. 

Here’s the NYT article about Parents Bullying Kids About Weight.

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
