Dear Pais­ley,

Raise Vegan - - Beauty - Sin­cerely, Kait­lyn, At­lanta, GA

I am a sin­gle mom to two amaz­ing chil­dren, my daugh­ter is 6 and my son is 4. While I made the switch to a ve­gan life­style over a year ago, I have had the hard­est time con­vinc­ing my kids to give up an­i­mal prod­ucts.

Be­fore I made the tran­si­tion we ate a lot of SAD diet sta­ples like chicken nuggets, burg­ers, not a lot of veg­gies, etc. and they’ve be­come stuck in their ways when it comes to food.

I don’t want to frighten them with scare tac­tics, nor do I want to force them into any­thing they truly don’t want to do. How­ever, I feel like if I could find a way to make the con­nec­tion for them, we’d all be on the same page. What are some gen­tle, age - ap­pro­pri­ate tech­niques I could use to con­vince them to join me on this jour­ney?
