Ok so my dad is a big time hunter and thinks meat is important and forces me to eat it when ever he fixes it and he goes out of his way to give me eggs and fish and meat and dairy when ever possible my mom supports me sometimes but other times is against me and thinks peta is a big mean cruel organization… What should I do I am 12 years old so I can’t drive and we live on a farm so I can’t walk to the store… Any help would be awesome
Show your parents why you want to be compassionate towards animals ( http://www.meat.org ). Tell them that this is something you’re very passionate about, and show it to them! Your parents will understand and will support you in the end.
Give them information, and keep your head strong! For the animals.
Hi there OryAnna! I can totally relate, because I actually started to finally act out against meat when I was 12. My parents were okay with me being mostly vegetarian but did want me to eat meat from time to time and forced me to sit for hours on the dining table until i “decided to eat my meat”. But thing is, they CANNOT force you to eat it. I literally sat there for hours without touching my meat, just eating around it and they finally gave up. Also, I showed them the benefits of a vegetarian diet. Why don’t you try giving them information on vegetarianism? And explaining why it would mean the world to you ?They should understand
