I am new here so bare with me.
We just learned that my 17 year old son's girlfriend has been battling an eating disorder. Her sisters and mom have also been battling this for many years. The mother is still active in this behavior. His girlfriend is very detached from the family and according to my son is not able to talk to them.
The girlfriend is out of town and my son has not spoken with her yet. I don't think she will be comfortable talking to me either. The family seems to keep "secrets" and does not speak openly about family issues.
How do I help her? How does my son appropriately help her. I am scared, my son is scared.
