Thank you so much for accepting this interview.
Can you first tell us a bit more about you ? Why and how did you started More-Love.org ?
I founded More Love in 2016 after recovering from a 30-year eating disorder. I wanted to create an online resource to empower parents to raise kids who are free from body hate, disordered eating, and eating disorders. We publish articles and resources to educate parents about weight, food, and mental health. We seek to reduce the fear and shame parents feel when they suspect or discover that their child has a problem.
I believe full recovery from an eating disorder is possible, and I support a Health at Every Size approach to parenting.
Where is More Love located ? Are you acting only locally ?
Congrats ! Can you describe who More Love is addressed to and what is its objective?
What kind of supports do you propose?
We provide articles, social media posts, online courses, e-books, and quizzes to help parents identify food and body problems and begin to address them. We recommend therapy for kids and parents who are encountering body, food, and eating issues. It is our strong belief that eating issues are a symptom that can easily distract from the emotional disorder, so we try to constantly bring parents back to the concept that eating disorders are mental disorders and require well-informed and specialized therapeutic intervention. We recommend that all parents participate in therapy, since eating disorders are frequently a symptom of relational and attachment issues, and parents who heal themselves support their child’s recovery.
