My four-year-old loves animals. The other day he asked, "Why do people eat animals?" None of our responses were satisfactory. He declared, "I'm not going to eat animals anymore!"
Tonight the topic came up again. He expressed his love for chickens and asked my twelve-year-old daughter,"Why do people have to eat chickens?" My daughter replied, “They don’t have to. But what if there was no food and they only had chickens?” To which my son answered, “Then they would eat the T.V.”
