Linux: Loser parents no other reason!


Not necessarily - OP says the kid had a recognised eating disorder. Would you say that bulimia or anorexia in a teenager was caused by bad parenting?


Every second kid seems to have some type of disorder these days so the parents can't be blamed for crap parenting!

 

???

 

First you said “Loser parents no other reason!”

 

Now you’re saying “parents can’t be blamed for crap parenting”. (?)

 

Contradict yourself much? 

 

Thinking seems muddled.

Dial111: It’s great to see that some can just come up with the reason with no real research into what causes these disorders and put it down to bad parenting.

 

It was reported.

 

The kid wouldn't eat properly.

 

 

 

You could say bad parenting, if they let it go and didn't try to take him to eating specialists.

 

Some though - anorexics for instance - do all that and the kid still persists.

 

So all I can say is Darwin Award to the kid, he was old enough to know better.

I actually believe that there may be a fair bit of bad parenting - it’s just that the case raised in this thread isn’t necessarily an example or a result of it.

Not completely related, since the teen who went blind and deaf was from England, and had a mental health condition.

But interesting observations on American obesity.

Rough language.

Some people with autism apparently only eat certain food and can have problem. eg some will only eat food that is yellow.

Yeah, fukim, he had it coming to him - right?


So you’d say to John Kirwan, who suffers depression, “Toughen-up and get a grip on yourself”. ?


Or to an anorexic “Here’s 10 bux, go over to Macdonalds and get yourself a good feed” ?


It’s this sort of attitude that underscores the very poor record of recognising and treating mental health issues that we have in NZ.

Absolutely unbelievable lack of empathy and understanding.

Yeah screw anyone who has any issues whatsoever in life, they dont need help they just need to harden up/pick themselves up by the boot strps and move on. No wonder our suicide rate is atrocious. I wonder how many in this thread have had to handle a teenager for any period of time?





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

I do know a bit about it.

 

My husband has what you might say is an eating disorder. he's 71, and he lost his sense of smell. he never was a big eater but now, he's 53kg. He has supplement from the GP but seriously, if I don't follow him around all day making him eat, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea etc etc, he just doesn't. His health is crap anyway, he loses anymore weight he's dead.

 

he agrees, yes I'm silly, yes I'll eat more. I try, I make things with texture.....but it lasts 5 minutes and he slides.

 

He knows better. He is also not the only one, friend of ours has the same condition, but she eats anyway, as she says, you don't eat, you die.

 

I said, if the parents try, and the kid still won't, what do you d, tie them down and force feed them? You can't MAKE someone do something, they have to make that decision themselves. And either they overcome it and get help, or they don't.

A bit late to the party on this one as I have been Phuket where Geekzone quite rightly blocks the local IP address.

 

Anyway as most of you know I am a retired paediatric Nurse. I have nursed these kids with ARFID (avoidant-restrictive food intake disorder), fortunately not to this degree, though it has been close on several occasions. This disorder is very much different to anorexia & bulimia. This disorder usually commences around the introduction of solids (6 mths > 2 yrs) but mustn't be confused with fussy eaters. A child can be predisposed (a genetic link) or it can be triggered by a traumatic event, mental or physical.

 

Now I have an even more personal interest in this as my partner of 38 years has ARFID. He has had it since he was two (he is now 58). The trigger in this case was a driveway vehicle accident where he was knocked over in the stomach and spent a few weeks in hospital where, due to the soreness of his tummy and his initial vomiting, then the fear of vomiting, he quickly became a picky eater leading into ARFID over a short period of just weeks. The hospital staff, GP and parents tried all sorts of strategises to no avail. Of course it was not called ARFID back then. He is the youngest of 11 kids who are all very intelligent and strong willed.

 

Unlike the unfortunate child in the above story his diet is just a little bit more varied, consisting mainly of; daily bread/buns/rolls, butter, honey, with 1 to 2 bags of crisps/day every day (120g/150g bags) and lemonade or coke (now sugar free). Then the occasional; French fries, vanilla ice-cream, pavlova, weetbix, milk, milkshakes, date scones, croissants with the only fruit being a sweet apple occasionally. NO veggies or white & red meats. His mother used to slip in a whole raw egg into his milkshakes when he was a kid and when he discovered that trick insisted on making his own.

 

He is still alive with type 2 diabetes and mild cardiac disease, when the doctors said he would not live past 30 - what do they know.

 

He confounds the dietitians when, on the rear occasion, he goes into hospital, which he detests with a passion.
