The Royal College of Child and Child Health in the United Kingdom urges parents to look into the eating disorders and problems of children, adolescents, and young adults.
Experts say that the main reason for this increase is the Kovid epidemic.
What is an eating disorder?
An eating disorder is a mental illness. It can occur when a child has an unhealthy relationship with their food and adopts extreme behaviors as a result. If there are no physical symptoms, you cannot tell by looking at someone that there is an eating disorder. Eating disorders occur when a person does not eat enough and loses too much weight. Also, overeating and being overweight are also eating disorders.
What is the cause of this situation at this time? Many factors are said to be linked to children’s eating patterns, including school isolation, cancellation of exams, loss of extracurricular activities such as sports, and increased use of social media.
It is also hypothesized that fear of the virus, the declining financial status of families, and students being forced to the quarantine may also be contributing factors.
Doctors say that sometimes the lack of opportunities for face-to-face encounters can lead to serious illness in young people.
Be aware of children’s changes
If parents or teachers see something different in children and suspect that they may have an eating disorder, talk to their family doctor first about their problems. Or seek advice from a nutritionist.
Early detection and treatment are successful Doctors say that these eating disorders in children can be detected early and there is a good chance of getting successful treatment for it.
“Eating disorders begin with many minor changes, such as children refusing to eat the foods they once enjoyed.” They speak.
If you see a difference in the way your child or teenager approaches to diet and exercise, talk to them about what is normal and what is not. Often children with eating disorders try to convince you of that. But you have to have an instinct to understand that. Then consult a doctor.
It is important for children and young people at risk of eating disorders to be more aware of this condition than ever before. As soon as you notice the first signs in your child, take action.
This is how children should be taught Table Manners
If your two-year-old spits at you or eats more than the size of his or her mouth when eating, most of the time you tend to forgive the child and forget about it. But if the habit does not change by the age of ten, can you be satisfied with the child’s behavior? You will definitely have to worry about that in the future. When are you trying to make your child a better person in society? That’s why I understand the importance of teaching Table Manners to a child from an early age.
Young children learn from the beginning
Table manners are not necessarily natural for children. Children do not eat well when they are young. Or most children just eat by spilling or throwing around their plate. They do not eat with their fingers. Most of the time both hands are used to eat food. They are placed on the table with their elbows open, mouths wide open, and chewed so that everyone can see inside the mouth. Other children fill their mouths with food and often talk, and when they try to do something, some food falls on the person next to them. Some children behave badly while eating. Thus, parents may try to ignore the conversations that parents have with them, either by reading a book or by quietly watching television.
The battlefield at the dining table
Some kids go to the other end of it. They choose their mealtime as a battleground to fight their brothers and sisters. They can be seen behaving in such a way that no one else can say a word at that time. Boys especially think that they can signal their satisfaction to others by making a loud noise at the end of a meal. When you express resentment at that time, they may look at you in amazement. Therefore, these bad habits frustrate parents in turning their children into well-behaved members of society in the future. If your children have any of the above behaviors, stop doing so immediately. Teach the following
Table Manners from an early age. These habits bring respect to you and your child in the community and also play a big role in making a positive difference in a child’s life.
Things you should teach your child
Do not chew loudly and pleasantly.
Eat only with your fingers. By no means do I want to convey that I recommend for the mother to be inactive.
Keep a napkin on your lap so that it does not fall on the clothesline.
Do not read or watch TV while reading. Meals should be an opportunity for the family to sit down together and get to know each other’s lives.
If you want to leave the table, practice saying excuse me before you go. When you want to go to the bathroom, do not say it out loud.
Before you get up from the table, wait until everyone has finished eating.
Burps discharge is not considered polite.
Do not speak when the mouth is full of food.
Do not eat flaxseed. Chew properly with small mouthfuls.
Eat everything on the plate without playing with food.
Use the words “please” and “thank you” when giving and asking for food.
