Think of feeding as an interpersonal activity. Huge questions and life-decisions are involved:

Who is in charge of my body—me or someone else?

Who gets to choose what I eat, and how much—me or someone else?

Who decides when I'm ready for the next step—me or someone else?

Is feeding a joyful part of life, or is it a ritual, a duty, a conformity to a set of rules?

Am I the competent one with power to decide—or is it someone else?
