    So i do my best to be vegan but my mother makes dinner and gets very upset if i dont eat my whole dinner. tell her im old enough to make my own choices and that im going to be living on my own very soon so i can learn to make my own food. But when she makes dinner thats non vegan and i dont eat it she gets upset and forces me to eat it.
    Ive offered to buy my own vegan foods even. but she always tosses them out.
    Any tips? Im going to moving out soon hopefully but my money goes twords helping with bills here, so to save up, it will take time.

    I’m confused… How, exactly, does she -force- you to eat the food? Does she physically put it in your mouth, move your jaw to chew it, and then shove it down your throat?

    As far as her throwing your food out, that really sucks. Do you have any friends you see often who would let you keep the food at their house? And as Dagmar suggested, buying non-perishables and hiding them in your room seems like a good option.

    Same here except with becoming vegan. I’ve been vegetarian for forever, and finally I got my mom to understand. Now hat I joined peta2, I know that just being vegetarian isn’t enough. I want to become vegan soo badly, but she won’t let me. I offered to buy the food and everything, and she denies that these things are cruel. I have shied away from showing her the graphic videos, cause I don’t know what she would think..What should I do?

    Hey @taywharris,

    I dont understand why some parents think it so bad. Its no like my mother care if im healthy really because she buys things like overly processed pizza rolls and Mcdonalss.. And vegan is much healthier anyways. I dont understand.

    My mom did the same thing to be. I was vegetarian for like 3 months and that included Thanksgiving and Christmas and she forced me to eat turkey and ham. I have wanted to be vegetarian again but I’m afraid she will force me to eat meat again…
