One response to “PARENTING TOGETHER APART: You Fed Him WHAT? Special Diets and Co-Parenting”

  1. Arden Greenspan-Goldberg

    One other thing, in my work with anorexic teens, I often have re-feeding and renourishing counselling as part of our session work. Often times parents are so anxious that their bone thin daughter is extremely anxious, depressed, starving and refusing to eat. The eating dynamic is so complicated, in both a physical, medical and psychic understanding. The most gratifying juncture in the journey of healing takes place when your tiny gal starts to eat in front of me. Their joy and passion and spirit starts to return. Their brain and mental functioning starts to go up a level or two.
    We so take for granted that out kids eat. So many have both special needs with food. Some act out all sorts of family dynamics through the refusal, binge, and or purging of food.
    Just thought I’d share this.
