What Is a Pacifist Mother To Do?
My first instinct is to say, “That’s not what a bow looks like. Here, let me make you a better one.” But then I worry maybe I’m stifling their creativity.
My second thought is to say, “No shooting in the living room!” But I’m not actually opposed to hunting for food, any more than I’m opposed to farming. So that feels hypocritical.
My third idea is to tell them they have to say a prayer for the spirit of every animal they kill. But then I roll my eyes. I can just hear them now, “Can it be a pretend prayer since it’s just pretend killing?”
But really, what’s a pacifist mother to do?
