Abstract/Description: Parental concern for children's weight plays an influential role in family dietary patterns, yet little is known about factors that predict this concern. The present study utilized data from a longitudinal cohort study on health and eating patterns to investigate if parental disordered eating attitudes and behaviors predicted concern for children's weight at 10-year follow-up above and beyond children's characteristics and other parental characteristics. In the final logistic regression model, greater drive for thinness, maintaining an under or overweight child, or gaining an under or overweight child were associated with increased likelihood of parental concern at 10-year follow-up at trend level (p<.10). Implications for future research are discussed.
