30 Most Toxic Things Parents Tell Their Kids

“I was around 6 the first time my mom decided I needed to ‘cut back’ and put me on a diet. I vividly remember watching her call out-of-state plastic surgeons to find someone who would give a 12-year-old a nose job when I was in junior high.

“I was not an unattractive girl, nor was I extremely overweight, and I was very athletic, but by the time I was a senior in high school, I was so deep in my eating disorder that I would pass out while catching a softball game . I’m almost 40, and neither my relationship with food nor my mother are very good — and those two things are closely intertwined.”
