22. How to stop the purge?

How can I stop my son from purging?

In this episode, I respond to a parent who is wondering how he can stop his son from purging. I review why people purge, and how understanding the urge to purge can help parents respond rather than react. Then I talk about how you can replace the purge with emotional comfort and care. This is a skill parents can learn and practice, and often takes time and vulnerability, since it’s usually awkward.
