I'm pregnant, and already anxious that my child will feel that s/he is part of a community consisting of one household only - ours. Members of other philosophical minorities (members of minority religions, for example), nonetheless seem to have huge communities, complete with opportunities for fellowship, compared to my knowing one other vegan Mom (the sister of a friend) in the entire metropolitan area, and her child will be nine years older than mine. We have other vegan friends, but for the most part, they are childless and plan to always remain so.
How helpful has it been, or do you feel it would be, to have other veg*n families, child-friendly veg*n groups, etc., for your children to know and be a part of? If you live in an area rich with veg*n children, how much has it helped? If you are the only veg*ns in town, how much has that been a problem?
