Like I've said before, keeping up on the latest writings about eating disorders is both the apogee and perigee of my work here at ED Bites. Reading other blogs like The Science of EDs is definitely a high point, the apogee. The perigee? Stuff like this article, title "Surefire Ways to Give Your Kids an Eating Disorder."
The suggestions, according to the blog's author Michelle Lewis, are things like:
- Be critical and abusive
- Expect perfection
- Nurture your own eating disorder
- Be emotionally distant
- Use food as a reward or punishment
