Hello! I have a twelve years old daughter. She started to pay more attention to her appearance few moths ago. She spends most of her time on front of the mirror. I know she is reaching her teen years and that such behavior is normal but I am concerned about her nutrition. She eats less then usual and she started to skip meals. She is also very concerned about her weight. How to know if this is eating disorder?
