  • 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 it’s their choice. There’s just some things in life that aren’t up to us. They will make the decision on their own when they are older and understand more about what’s going on.

    I’d raise mine to have animal compassion but give them the opportunity decide on their own by providing vegetarian food at home and letting them make their own decisions while at social events.But I’d support them to be Eco- friendly and cruelty free regardless.

    No, I would not push my child to be vegetarian or vegan. I have so much support in my life being vegetarian and I do not feel it is right to push your views onto other people. Yes, I like to share what I know and try to help other people realize that it really is a great thing to be vegetarian or vegan but I would never in my life tell someone they are wrong for eating meat because they never criticize me about my lifestyle choices. I feel as though I should let my children figure out their course in life and lifestyle choices by themselves. I would of course love if they chose to be vegetarian or vegan but it would not be a requirement.

    I think I want to raise my kids vegan, especially if I marry my lactose-intolerant boyfriend. I think it would be fine if you provide them with meat/dairy alternatives. You won’t be depriving them and it’s what you, as their parent, thinks is best.

    I’m going to raise my kids vegetarian and let them decide, I have an amazing partner and altho my partner is not a vegetarian they are very understanding and we want to feed our kids healthy and keep their bodies clean of any hormones and toxins. I feel like it is my responsibility to protect my childrens souls also by not letting them eat meat I feel as if I am stopping them from committing murder.
