Eating Disorders are serious disorders. Every person with an eating disorder has a different story to tell, a different background, and a different personality. Thus tips and guidelines in Dr. Haltom's newsletter and these articles may or may not apply to your child or family member. The professional(s) treating your child should identify optimum guidelines for treatment.

Parents and guardians: In newsletter articles which contain TIPS for you, you can ask your child with an eating disorder which tips she or he agrees with.
