My mom and Dad are supportive because they know I know what to do in almost any situation and I know where to get answers for things that I don't already know. Suprisingly my mom's mom told me (without any attempt on my part to educate her) that she was supportive of me 100% because "I just don't think some of those doctors really know what they're doing".

My inlaws and extremely skeptical and uncomfortable and try to sway me all the time by asking questions to which they think I won't know the answer. Unfortunately for them I have known the answers to every question they've asked so far and I always have sources to back me up.
