After shattering my wine glass last night... I'm wondering if anyone can reccomend a short video or article that could explain to an outsider the role of parents as carers? I feel no one understands the tremendous pressure and fear and responsibility for a parent of an ED child..I can't seem to find anything that really spells it out well. Wouldn't surprise me if it didn't exist either.

You may find the video cartoons of Eva Musby helpful. You can also download her book onto your phone or buy the paper copy. 

Just search "Eva Musby".

She has covered so many possible scenarios! You will definitely find lots of tips, as well as very insightful explanations behind the behavior and the solutions. 

All the best,
