Tumblr Recovery Warriors: A Question
My church is doing a curriculum called Just Eating regarding food from both a personal perspective (what do I put in my body?) and a political/community perspective (how do my food shopping choices affect others?). There is an adult group doing it (I’m in that) and the youth group is also doing it (basically 12 - 18 year olds). I am meeting, hopefully Friday, with the youth minister to discuss how to make it sensitive and safe for teens dealing with body image concerns, dieting, and eating disorders. I have my own personal opinions but I could use others — what makes a conversation about food and eating safe for those with these concerns? What else should I tell the youth minister?
