For some teens, particularly girls, excessive efforts to control eating may be a
misguided effort to
A. punish parents.
B. manage the stress and physical changes that confront them as they pass
C. punish themselves.
D. regress back to the oral stage of development.
I think its either A or B. Help!!
Probably it's B.
Yeah that was my first answer but then I read some more about how family influences play a role in eating disorders. It says this Accordingly,a teens eating disorder may be functional in that directs attention away from basic conflicts in the family to the teens more obvious problem.
I still think it's more likely to be B, although A applies in some cases.
I would agree with Ms.Sue it could apply in some cases.
