so this has probably been posted a ton of times, but oh well.
i want to go vegetarian, but my parents don’t support it. i’ve told them before but i just got yelled at, probably because i’d be the only person in the house that’d bw vegetarian and they don’t want to spend twice the money, i don’t know. but now i’n scared to tel them again that i’m really serious about this whole thing because i don’t want to get yelled at again. does anyone have advice on how i could tell them? or even how i could talk them into supporting me? thank youuuuu. 🙂
When I went veg in high school, pre veganism, I went throu something similar with my dad. He and all of his side of the family are hunters, while my mother and her side of the family are more free spirited and open minded. What I did to win my dad over was lay out all the facts on wh it would be a good transition for my body, how it would actually SAVE him money, etc. just try reasoning with them in a science based manor. Aside from the obvious compassionate reasoning behind going veg, there is science as well. So enough facts to satisfy both sides of the brain :). Best of luck!
Try to convince them that being vegetarian has its perks. Show them articles, videos, whatever it takes. Or, start making your own food to show them that you’re serious about this. My parents were pretty supportive of me going vegan, (my family’s vegetarian) but were mainly concerned that I would get enough protein in my diet. Make sure your parents know that this isn’t just a ‘phase’, too.
