Thanks ladies maybe it is just because it's something my mum doesn't like to watch so she's passing it onto the kids.
She does have night terrors occasionally but never when she's been watching docos we've narrowed it down to when she's had something sugary after dinner.
She doesn't seem bothered when she sees something killed/eaten I do watch and make sure she isn't worried but if you talk about it she knows that the tiger is just wanting something to eat like we eat beef and pork and chicken etc.
She also knows about the different meats like beef is from cows etc and she's been in the truck when we've taken a cow into the butcher from my sisters farm before and knows about the cycle. I wouldn't take her into the slaughter house at this age but I don't think it's an issue knowing about where the cow is going etc.
I guess it just shows how different my mum and my views are. I've been shooting and done slaughter and butchering when I did an ag degree so maybe i'm just a bit desensitised whereas mum wouldn't be able to deal with doing stuff like that
Its possible, your attitude towards it will also reflect on your kids. If you are ok with it, its likely they will be too.
My mum is a volunteer at a musuem and she was showing me a selection of post mortem photography. They used to take family portraits including the person who had died. They used to dress them up and take a formal pic with their family and it was really hard to pick who was the dead person. Its all about what they are exposed to as to whats normal....
