I have a teenage boy who has no desire to eat. He says everything is gross and only wants to eat popcorn or cereal. Any advice on whether I should be concerned?

yes!! he is not getting the nutrition for a growing body. Have you had him checked out for anorexia? It's not only a girls disease. He needs to see your physician and have a full check up. He also needs to know that you take his "problem" seriously. Arguing and forcing him to eat will give him power, but dealing with his problem medically will show him the seriousness in it. (also tell him that puberty will be slowed down!)
