Good Morning folks

Our 17 year old son is quite skinny and doesn't eat properly. We think he may have some sort of eating disorder.

We are trying to persuade him to go to the doctors for a quick chat/check up, but he refuses to go.

Can you advice the best way to persuade him to speak to the doctor?

Thanks

You could try talking to his school, but if he’s fit and healthy otherwise, it may just be his body type.

In the next few years he may well start to fill out.
