Eating disorders thrive on triangulation between mothers and fathers:

"We can't expect patients to be happy or easy to live with. We can't expect them to be polite, neat, or willing to cooperate with treatment. We have to expect that their responses will be consistent with the nature of their illness - fearful and resistant to weight restoration. Conflict between caregivers reduces a patient's sense of safety and creates space for ed to amplify triangulation to the point where treatment becomes disjointed and ineffective."
