Hi i'm Rachel and i'm 14 years old,
I have been vegan now for nearly 3 months and i thought my parents were starting to accept it, but my dad obviously doesn't because always says 'why can't you just be vegetarian? the cows aren't harmed and you wont even eat honey!' i have tried explaining to him but he just says they are dumb animals. I understand why he is worried about me, but he also thinks that i have eating problems with food and stuff which can be soo frustrating because i know that i don't and i eat more now than i ever have! It can be really hard, but i know i wont be going back to eating animal products.
some support and advice would be helpful and if you are in a similar situation how do you deal with it?
Thank you in advance :) xx
