• Would You Raise Your Kid Vegetarian?

    I’ve always assumed I would raise my kids vegetarian, but was discussing it with my boyfriend and he brought up the following argument, “How’s that different from brining up your kids religious?”

    Obviously vegetarianism is a form of indoctrination, much like religion, and I can’t justify its use, even if it is moral. Now, obviously if I was to raise my kids without meat, but didn’t restrict their consumption of meat elsewhere, I wouldn’t be forcing any particular ideology down their throats, yet how would I approach a situation in which they ate animals outside of the home?

    Any thoughts?

    I think one day i will raise my children vegetarian and let them decide if the want to eat meat, stay vegitarian, or go vegan like their mom when they are older.

    If I ever have a kid I would definitely raise them vegan. I was brought up in a religious family but I made my own way in life and chose not to be religious myself. If my kids don’t want to be vegan, that’s their choice and I will respect that.

    I would totally do that! although I agree with @rebeccalynne329 I wouldent let them eat any meat until I explain it to them.

    Eating meat is also a form of indoctrination. You can’t avoid teaching your kids what you think is right for them. Keeping them away from meat is keeping them healthy and also teaching them compassion. To me it seems like the obvious choice.
