Tips from the trenches

A few of my recovering girls helped me put this together for their parents. This is a great resource for family or friends of someone recovering from an eating disorder. But it's not just for them.

At the risk of ruffling feathers, these apply broadly, not just to eating disorder kids and not just to parents.

We as women have a responsibility to teach girls how to love themselves and love others; how to maintain balance in a world of extremes; how to Nourish their bodies, not abuse them; how to speak consciously in truth, without judgment. Men and boys too. 
And we can only teach them by doing it ourselves. 
Don't lose sight of what's important and what's REAL in a superficial, diet, image, accomplishment driven society.

We are all works in progress and the unfinished, imperfect, raw authenticity is the most beautiful part.
