My family doesn't support my baking

I am an avid baker who bakes very often, and I've got really good at it and love it, but my family totally doesn't support me. They say it's a waste, my mum thinks I should stop, my sister doesn't eat the stuff I bake. All my friends and their family love my cakes and cookies and order them for birthdays and festivals, I've received loads of compliments. I just don't get why my family doesn't support it - they even go out of their way to make sure I don't bake, and ban me from baking cakes for birthdays and stuff, or go behind my back and buy a cake from outside before I can bake one. It's not money, it's not cleanliness, so I really don't think what they do is justified. Help!
