A Mother Helps Her Son with Food Concerns

Psychology of Eating

Amy has reached out to Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, in regards to her 9 year-old son, Xander, who has a complex, picky, and troublesome relationship with food. Marc explains the possible reasons for Xander's anxiety around controlling what he eats. Amy learns what it could look like to support her son, while not trying to fix him. In Marc's words, he is a sensitive, interesting soul, he is complex, and he is whole. He is not broken. In turn, Marc invites Amy into a new strategy of being curious with her son, in a way that will support him to manage and grow through his experience, as opposed to both of them being stuck in the spinning wheel of "What's for dinner?... I don't want that".
