My wife is mad I let my 6-year-old watch a snake eat: Advice?

So my niece has a pet snake and I let my son watch the snake eat his food (Mice). my wife is livid with me over it but I dont really think I did anything wrong, not trying to be push her feelings aside but also dont think it’s wrong. I’m conflicted. What’s everyone’s opinion on this? My son is 6

Its a natural way of life. My kids are 6 and 4 and have seen snakes eat multiple times. Wait til he asks where his meat comes from :joy: what she gonna do then?

Explain how it’s fine if we eat animals that it’s the same thing for the snake.

My daughter is 6 and has her own snake that she feeds more to.

As long as he wasn’t forced to watch, I don’t see the problem.

It’s a fact of life. They have to eat. Its nature

If he can’t handle seeing it eat then maybe he’s not old enough for that particular pet.

Lol. I laughed pretty good!!

Is your wife a vegetarian? Probably not.

I would not be okay with that. My oldest is 5. He doesn’t need to know how vicious the world is yet.

Tell her it’s a natural occurrence in life, long as you explain to the child what’s happening, tell her to get over herself

Not a big deal. When my oldest was 6 we had a pet turtle who got live feeder goldfish as a treat once a month. We were at a department store and got some from the pet department while getting groceries. In the checkout line the little old lady commented to him that he was lucky to be getting some new pets. She was a little taken aback at his cheerful correction that they were food for his turtle! :rofl:
