Hey @tteegg, that sounds super difficult and frustrating. Situations like these are difficult to manage and we only try our best but it doesn't always feel successful. Is this something you have experienced before? Are there any external supports that could help you in this situation right now? Sending best wishes your way

Sorry you are going through this. Especially on holiday where you would expect everyone to be happy and relaxed. Hopefully you and the rest of your family are still able to go out and do things. It must be so frustrating when you just want to enjoy yourself and your family but your teen refuses to participate. Hang in there and maybe your teen will get board soon and come out with you. I am hoping!

So sorry to hear your daughter isn't enjoying the family holiday.
You mentioned she hasn't eaten in three days. Maybe suggest going to a cafe that servers her favourite food!
My teenager will jump at the chance to go a burger place.
Does she enjoy going for long walks?
If so, this would be great one on one time and hopefully she will open up.

I'm sorry to hear she's not accepting the help on offer.
The Butterfly foundation is an organisation that helps people with all eating disorders. They are also able to help families that are worried about someone you care about.
You can find out more here.
Your holiday wasn't a bad idea, you wanted time away as a family. This is something we all enjoy to do from time to time.
You're a caring Mother, that's trying to assist her daughter and find the best way to help her.
I hope this information helps!
