Daughter Losing Weight, When Should I Worry?

January 28, 2012

“My daughter has lost quite a bit of weight recently and I think she might have an eating disorder. When I ask her about her eating habits, she tells me she’s just stressed right now. School is busy for her, and she just broke up with her boyfriend. Her mom and I have also recently gotten divorced, and I know that’s not easy on her either. I want to be understanding of these things, but am concerned about how little she’s eating. Do you think it is just stress, and that this will just pass? Or is there something I should be doing?”
