A Mothers Love

Sometimes eating disorders are caused by those you would never think of. Have you ever wondered why there is an enormous amount of childhood obesity in the world today.

Well the problem may lie with the parents and they, themselves, may not even know that they are causing it. You, as well as, many others may have been told by your parent to finish every ounce of food on your plate. In other words “never waste anything”. Well it is this simple statement they may cause some types of eating disorder.

Children may struggle with there parents telling them this, but a the same time their weigh may suffer. This can carry on to teen years as well. Once in your teen years, you try to struggle to stay as slim and fit as everyone else, but that conflicts with what you learned as a child. This should not be ignored and should be taken under constant supervision.
