My eldest sondaughter wants to leave home

If you have older teenage children they may resent the extra attention that your anorexic son is getting so much that they threaten to leave home. It might be the natural time for them to go anyway or you might feel it is totally inappropriate. Once again education and communication are crucial. You may well find that the elder sibling actually decides to stay at home to give moral support to the rest of the family. In other cases they may decide to go anyway, but at least if they understand your son's illness they are less likely to feel that they have been driven out of their home by it.
