I've decided to go Vegetarian (no dairy, not sure about eggs as we have chickens) about 5 weeks ago. I'm having a very easy time of it. My daughter has expressed an interest in joining me, but she feels overwhelmed by temptation. I've seen the nasty videos (Earthlings, newsclips, etc) but I'm not sure that she needs to see that just yet. When someone around her has meat, she wants it (only if it's steak or burger, not anything else, really). She's requested that no meat be made in the house, but with my husband and other children still eating meat, I'm not sure how far I can go with that. As it is, they have meat in the house about once a week that is like a side-dish, separate from everything else and made just for them.
How do I help her focus on the realities of meat (in the face of temptation) without letting her see videos that are just too raw for her just yet? She's pretty intense and I'm afraid of what the knowledge of the reality would do to her. I don't want her to feel guilty if she wants meat, but I do want to support her own goals of not eating meat.
How would you handle this?
