A dad has used social media to open up about his little secret and it has certainly divided people on the internet.

The unnamed father explained how she secretly gives his daughter's vegan friend meat whenever she comes round for sleepovers because he's worried about her health.

In his Am I The A**hole post, the dad admits he knows it is probably wrong but he does it anyway.

"M's family maintains a strict vegan diet where she isn't even allowed to drink milk," the dad said.

"Her parents are nice people although a bit on the neurotic side. M is bright young girl and she's a good friend to my daughter but I noticed how much smaller and paler she is compared to my daughter. I think it's likely tied to her family's diet.

"So whenever she is over I always make a big meaty meal for them. Last weekend I made some cheeseburgers and steak for them on the grill with a big glass of milk.

"M absolutely loves it and always politely asks for more (which I happily provide). For snacks I give them some of my venison jerky.

"For breakfast I typically make a big plate of scrambled eggs and bacon again with a big glass of milk. Despite her size M always wolfs down whatever I make. And I have to say everytime she leaves it looks like she has a healthy glow to her.

"I know I probably shouldn't be doing this but I think M is a bit malnourished (nothing against vegans or anything). She knows she'll get in big trouble if she tells her folks. (I think she fibs a bit to her parents about what she eats)."

People had all sorts of theories about the parenting method and many explained how the man shouldn't be meddling in another person's family or life.

One concerned individual wrote in the comments section: "No adult should be asking a kid to keep a secret from their parents, that is a very slippery slope and extremely inappropriate."

A different person added: "Stop substituting your judgements about how this kid is raised for her parents. She's not your kid."

One Reddit user drew a line at the 'malnourished' comment and slammed the unnamed dad for judging 'her family, and her family's diet'.

Another person highlighted that the family's vegan diet could be because of a bunch of reasons, including religious, which the man definitely shouldn't be getting in between.
