Ms. Malcom although independent is dependent on her parents for emotional support and this is clouding her judgements as her parents are of another generation and may have experienced the same problems and but the way the problems would have been resolved was differently because of generational gap.

On the other hand, the children are not the only ones disturbed by this occurrence. Even with making the decision themselves, parents may face internal conflict after the fact.

It is a nagging pressure to release anger, frustration, helplessness, and any other troubling emotion. The documentary The Silent Hunger: Anorexia and Bulimia was full of resonating quotes including one by a recovering bulimic named Justine: “Once I found that there was this comfort for myself to relieve my pain… fears, insecurities-- I didn 't want to let go of that”. After a few other individuals explain their same feelings towards bulimia helping them expel emotions, the documentary goes into a section that highlights the similarity between all of the individuals—the concept of control. Bulimia is a way for the patient/individual to have control in their life. They may not have control over their job, personal life, or other stress in life but they think of bulimia as something they can control.
