Do you have the courage to go into a burning building to save your child?
Of course you do.
The word courage comes from the Latin 'cor' meaning heart. Courage means going into the unknown despite fear and being led by the heart.
If your child suffers from an eating disorder her life is in danger. The steps you take to try to save her are not as clear as rescuing her from a fire. You can't reach into her inner world and pull her out of a destructive way of thinking, feeling and behaving. But, you can take some heart-guided actions that help to support and heal your child. Some actions may appear straightforward while others may be confronting and painful. However, like facing any danger to rescue your child, your love and courage will equip you to face the challenges ahead.
