Gisele Bundchen's Mother's School of ED Prevention
Now that internationally known model Gisele Bundchen set us straight on the true cause of eating disorders:
"Parents are responsible, not the fashion industry"
We rushed to her mother for an exclusive interview:
Mama Bunchen's Tips for Preventing Eating Disorders:
* Encourage your daughter to make a living based on her appearance.
* Assure your daughter that her looks are so important that people will listen to anything she says.
* Make sure your daughter confuses the fact that people listen to her with there being anything to listen to.
* Reassure her that no matter how uninformed and damaging her comments, as long as she says nice things about you, she's a good daughter.
Post script: There has been more coverage of one model's comment about parents causing eating disorders than all the mentions there have ever been on the Maudsley approach, the one treatment approach which says the opposite. I despair.
(post post script: I feel better: "Families do not cause anorexia nervosa")
