I'm trying to find girls magazines for my niece with only one constraint. There should be no mention of dieting or food in the mag. Is there such a publication. Our family is at it's wits end trying to get through to a very much loved girl. Any help is good and appreciated.
I urge you to get proper professional help with this. Eating disorders are complex and deep-rooted problems which loving care alone cannot resolve. Well meant advice from this forum may not be helpful.
FE, she is nearly 16 and is interested in music, fashion, and cinema. Knockin on and TopCat®, She is already being treated professionally. Thanks for the link. The reason I posted here is because we have a massive cross-section of people and experience here and I know the help that is freely given is worth listening to. Thanks for help so far, I won't close this yet.
Maybe trying to keep all of it away from her isnt a good idea, I mean if she want to find info on food & dieting she can get it anywhere. I'm sure its a truely awful problem, good luck, I wish her all the best.
To remove temptation, just makes the temptation to have greater. I've always found open discussion (not lecturing) with an open mind better. I never responded to to strict rules and lecturing... mind you I still don't.
Quickbeam, I believe you, others may not. It was the Matron of the place she's at who suggested the magazines. I agree with donki that in trying to isolate her from the problem is going to accentuate it. I'm just the messenger and wasn't involved in the original discussion. wee eddie, I'd forgotten that riding was one of her interests so your suggestion isn't so wide of the mark. TopCat®,I've been in touch with b-eat and they are very helpful. Thank you everyone I'll click resolved.
