Many of you said they can feed the child what they want to.

How do you feel about letting children express themselves and having their own beliefs? I know many here are all about not holding kids back and letting them be themselves. Like dressing themselves playing dressup in princess dresses, playin with make up or dolls, to believe or not in God etc?

So if you said they can feed how thy want to, what's the difference if you believe in child expression?



Edit: I'm NOT talking cake, chips soda etc. no junk.... I'm talking fish and chicken. There are ways to prepare it healthy like baking or broiling it.

How did you reply to the vegan post? That's what I'm trying to see. If he can express himself in clothing why hold him back on foods if its healthy? Meat can and is healthy in moderation.

My DD is 5, she picks out what she wears most days but eatting whatever she wants is much different. That is her health so no at 5 she has no control. Also i teach her my craft(my faith) and when she is older she can choose her own path, but again she is 5.

I'm a tattooed,pagan,pro-choice,pro-legalizing marijuana,pro-gay marriage,anti-war,non-vaxing,tree hugging,animal loving,book reading,animal testing free,depression battling, trying to raise a free spirit and letting her be who she is but still teaching her important life lessons,fighting for equal rights at the same time,don't like it get over it.

There are adult sized decisions and child sized choices
My adult decision is that we are having veggies with dinner. Ds gets the child sized choice of which veggie he would like.

Clothing doesnt impact his health, what he eats does

So eating fish and chicken in moderation is unhealthy and should be thought that way?


I'm not saying let her eat pizza rolls chips dip and soda.

If that is what she wants to teach her child that is what she should be able to do.

Completely understand that. I'm just trying to grasp how forcing a child to eat vegan or letting him eat fish and chicken is unhealthy? I wouldn't load him down with a fried chicken or fish but baked or filled is healthy with portion control.

I think she's setting herself up for rebellion. There are choices but as he gets older it won't be as easy. All I can say is poor child :-/ it makes me sad.
