Hello, I'm not a mom - I know it's called circle of Moms, you really don't need to tell, me, thanks:)
Anyway, Im in Highschool, in 7th Grade, I am 12, almost 13 and I really wan't to be a vegetarian because I love animals and I am concerend about the way animals are treated. I have done reseach and I know I need to have a balanced diet and eat high-protein foods.
I started watching youtube videos a few years back on vegetarianism and watched videos in it for about 3 days straight. I then started to watch other videos, and stopped my self from watching videos about vegetarians. A few months later, I started to watch videos on vegetarians again !
I was eventually confident to speak to my Dad while my mom was at work and they are REALLY BIG MEAT - EATERS! I talked to my cousin before I asked my Dad (She was a vegetarian) and she said he would be impressed that I wanted to make a choice for myself but he wasn't.
They don't know what I will eat as a vegetarian because they have NEVER researched it so they don't know how healthy it Can be if done correctly.
How do I persuade my parents to let me give it ago?
Any advice will be greatly appriciated xx
