So, this was a post I stumbled upon on a different forum. It was a 17 year old girl saying she had a big argument with her father because she is a vegetarian, and refuse to cook meals with meat in them for her family (but is perfectly willing to cook vegetarian dishes for them). Her father apparently even told her she should move out if she didn’t respect the rules in their home. Now, I understand that teenagers often remember the situation differently than what it really was like, but if what she says is true, I’m kind of horrified by this father. However, what surprised me the most was the responses she got.
She got a lot of responses, all of which told her she was acting unreasonable and should obey and respect her father. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve always felt that respect between parent and child should be mutual. I know I would never ask my daughter to cook meat if she became vegetarian. Of course I’m not afraid of vegetarian meals. I’m practically pescetarian anyway.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
