Animals can be entertaining and educational. Children learn a lot from animals.
We want to teach your children from their earliest days to be infinitely tender and loving to animals. If an animal be sick, let the children try to heal it. If it is hungry, let them feed it. If thirsty, let them quench its thirst. If weary, let them see that it rests. Visit your local A & P show like our Hamilton Educator recently, what a great opportunity and location to show children a awesome selection of animals.
From the time they were tiny tots, encourage children to respect animals and their habitats and teacj them to interact gently with creatures large and small.
It’s easy to think that kids will naturally be kind to animals without having to be taught, but that’s not necessarily true. Some kids don’t have an instinct for being gentle.
Teaching compassion for creatures can help kids develop empathy for all living things, including their fellow human beings. And encouraging respect for animal habitats is an important part of teaching children about protecting the environment.
