Do you allow your children to eat meat at relatives houses, restraurants, etc.? If not, how do you handle those awkward situations? Me and my husband used to not be very strict about the kids eating meat outside the house, but we watched a horrific video (we are so glad Nightline aired it cause people need to know!) that made us decide to really crack down on all meat consumption outside the house as well. I don't think we will have too much of a problem with our 3 yr old. I am more worried about our 9 yr old who is gung-ho on meat. Should we resort to being graphic about the horrors of what goes on in not only slaughter houses but the atrocious living conditions of these animals? Would it be wrong to tell him if he wants to eat meat he has to watch a video of an animal's living conditions?(I think video of slaughter would really be going too far) Please help and be gentle with me.
