Hi, all! I'm currently in college and I'm to write an argumentative essay for my English class. I'm working toward my B.A. in Child Psychology and I've chosen a topic. My topic is raising a child as a vegan. My question to you is what you think the pros and cons are. I'm not trying to get into a heated discussion about it. Just curious. Vegan parents, are you raising your children to be vegan too? If they ask to try milk or meat later in life, would you allow them and let them decide how to eat?
I know that a vegetarian diet is actually quite healthy and I've read that vegan diets are the same way (there are other ways to get protien and the people actually aren't being denied any nutrients if they keep to a good diet.) I just don't see a difference in raising a child omnivorous and that child deciding to be a Vegan later vs. raising a child vegan and that child deciding to be an omnivore later.
