Teen binge eating, how to bring topic up with her dad?
I have a horrid SD14. Some may remember the horrible things she has done and some she still does. I am fully disengaged, that is the only way to keep my sanity. I have notice over the years her binge eating at night, usually sweets. Here lately however, it is huge amounts of food and some strange things, for example, whole bottles of bbq sauce. Today my BS6 had a sore throat and I had just bought a gallon of ice cream, when I went to make him some it was gone. I went in her room and it is empty, stuck in the back of her closet. I was floored at the amount of food wrappers and empty bottles in her room. Just a list of the items I found today, 2 bottles of bbq sauce, whole bag of chips, gallon of ice cream, whole bag of marshmallows, 4 chocolate bars, pgk of graham crackers, 5 empty bowls thrown in garbage can, cereal pieces all over floor, vanilla extract and a large container of peanut butter. All empty, and several things that I just bought in the last few days. Today is when I realize that this child has a huge problem. On top of all this, she eats as much as my H at meal time. I feel that I should speak out about this and bring it to her dads attention, but it has worked really well for me to leave it along and let him deal with her. So, I am asking for advice on what to do, say something or just keep my mouth shut. I believe she has serious mental problems and have voiced that before, and I also refuse to keep buying food that she just eats in one night. I have locked away sweets and things that I can in my room, but I cannot lock up the entire kitchen. Anyway, advice please!!!
