Wow, Squirl, that is so cool. I hope my kids feel the same way when they are grown.
Was there ever a point in your life when you or your brother asked your parents if you could try meat? Or wanted to try it? How did your parents approach vegetarianism in general? Did they ever tell you that you couldn't eat meat when you were away from home, or did that just not come up?
I imagine that when my kids are old enough, I will allow them to decide for themselves whether they want to be vegetarian when they are away from home. I don't want them to feel forced, and then rebell. However I also imagine that if my children realize all of the suffering that goes into the meat industry, they won't want to be a part of it.
