They will probably be hostile and think it's a phase. I would come armed with facts from scientific and health sources, parents tend to listen to that MUCH more strongly than compassionate reasons. Stay clear and level headed, thats all you really can do to avoid an argument.

I've been veggie for about 3 and a half years and some people in my family still think it's a phase .. but they will see in time.<br><br>
I agree with having information ready to help you answer questions that they may have. I wish you the best!<br><br><br><br>
