Parents-to-Parents is a non-profit organization with a 501c3 tax exempt status.
We are parents who have experienced a child's struggle through anorexia. We often felt confused about how to help our child recover. Through mistakes, trials and errors, and the love and commitment we felt, we made it or are making it through. Now we want to help other parents navigate that journey better than we did.
Our goal is to help other parents by providing clear, practical, and evidence-based information and suggestions through documentaries. Our first documentary (like those to come) is based on:
interviews with parents who share what they wish they had known at the onset of their child's anorexia
insights from those who have recovered from anorexia, and
interviews with professionals who discuss the most current research and provide insights.
We hope this will enable adults in a suffering child's life to be able to:
quickly gain a basic understanding of the disorder
have compassion for the child's suffering
understand how to best respond and what therapies should be tried first
