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?
@matt.law.545 My opinion exactly.
If you let your children eat meat elsewhere, that doesn’t really propound the fact that it’s wrong. Truthfully, meat is murder. If you let them know that by eating animals, you’re basically killing them, they’ll know which is the right thing to do. It’s not forcing them into anything if they know that. When they’re older, they can choose.
