Did you know the prevalence of eating disorders more than doubled worldwide from 2000-2018? That is a startling increase.

Experts agree that many factors contribute to the development of eating disorders, but the influence of media seems to be at the top of everyone’s list. So how parents help our children manage the unrealistic images and harmful messages they are exposed to through media? 

Join the Safe & Healthy Homewood Collaborative for a special parent education program online this Thursday, March 2nd. The program is designed to help parents know healthy ways to talk to children about food, exercise, and their body. Remember, parents have more influence over their children than friends, music, media, and celebrities.
