Teenage Sugar Addict

In Episode 49, I answered a question from Tina about her pre-teen daughter possibly dealing with sugar addiction. This topic isn’t talked about much in parenting circles. Hence, I thought it would be good to dedicate another episode to it. This comes after the last two weeks of chocolates, candy canes, gingerbread houses and cookie decorating. So, let’s start the new year off with a teenage sugar addict. Mia is a 17 year old who realized sugar was affecting her negatively and completely gave it up in middle school, ON HER OWN! I wanted to know if there was anything her mom said or did that helped her come to this conclusion. Tune in, or better yet, have your sugar-crazed kiddo tune in, to learn HOW and WHY Mia completely stopped eating sugar. You’ll learn…. -How she realized sugar was causing her problems. -What it was like to completely go off and what it taught her. -How she copes with peer and family pressure to eat sugar. -What her parents did that was helpful, and what didn’t help at all. Happy New Year!
