My daugh­ter’s too thin


I’m very wor­ried about my daugh­ter. She’s got a new boyfriend and, since she met him, she’s be­come ex­tremely thin. I’m con­vinced he’s en­cour­ag­ing her not to eat. When they’re at my house, he makes snide re­marks if she has so much as a tiny bis­cuit. She’s smit­ten with him, so I don’t know how to broach this with­out up­set­ting her. Ais­ling, Coven­try I can un­der­stand your wor­ries, but I think, as her mother, you have to con­front your daugh­ter about this. Try not to blame the new boyfriend – that never goes down well. But do tell her your con­cerns about how thin she’s got, and you might dis­cover that all she needed to open up was for you to ask her about the sit­u­a­tion.
