For many teenagers, entering into puberty can be a time wrought with intense emotions, confusion, and stress. This period of change is what makes teens susceptible to developing eating disorders.

Adolescent eating disorders (such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and compulsive overeating) are concerns every parent hopes to avoid. Yet, because so many young people struggle with eating disorders, it is important to know the facts.

50% of teenage girls and 30% of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors.

69% of females (ages 10 to 18) state that photographs of models and celebrities in the media motivated their “ideal” body shape.

What signs can you look for to know if your teen is struggling? How can you help prevent disordered eating, and promote positive body image? Join Tracy Teipen and April Bordeau as they discuss this important and life changing topic.
