Children learn a lot from
pets. Their sense of responsibility increases, and their social behavior
If there is a pet in the
house, children form such a relationship with this animal, the effects of which
can be seen on their whole personality. It is very useful in training children
that when they look after and care for an animal in their childhood, they
develop gentleness and sense of responsibility as well as feelings of kindness
in their personality.
According to American
Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, a child who cares for an animal and
treats it with kindness and tolerance. He is trained to show the same patience and
kindness to people in his life.
Another important thing is
that animals have a much faster life cycle than humans. That is, they go
through many stages of their lives in a short period of time and the child gets
to witness all the stages of a pet’s life.
We know that a child
learns more through observation than through words because children’s powers of
observation are very sharp. In this way, they also learn by watching pets that
accidents, death, diseases and bereavement are a part of life and how their pet
reacted in these situations.
At the same time, feelings
of sympathy flourish in them and then when they see a person in their life
going through these painful stages of life, they feel the feelings of sympathy
in their heart and try to understand their pain.
Since children are
sensitive, they soon develop an emotional attachment to these animals and form
a strong bond. This relationship instills in them feelings of respect not only
for other animals but also for humans.
Children who spend time with
pets also have higher self-esteem than other children. There is also the fact
that children can become temporarily irritable when pets do not understand
their instructions or cause harm. But then gradually they also learn that there
is no point in getting angry or showing irritation.
You can also express your
opinion in a calm and gentle tone. From your observation, you can see that when
the opportunity comes to take care of the animal that comes home on the
occasion of sacrifice, not only the children of the house but also all the
children of neighborhood get involved in this work. All the children work as a
team and take care of the sacrificial animal with utmost responsibility.
These are all children who
are showing extreme indifference and bad temper as well as annoyance in their
daily life, due to which growing intolerance of adults is also reflected in children’s
The care of pet animal
should be entrusted to children, which will increase the sense of
responsibility, compassion and confidence in children. They learn a lot from
these animals and become a useful member of the society.
Many parents think that
owning animals can affect their children’s health, but in reality, this is not
the case at all.
Research has shown that
raising children with a pet has positive effects on their health.
There are countless
aspects of our lifestyle that affect our immune system, in fact even 20 minutes
of out loud laughter can improve a person’s immune system and pets are a great
help in this regard.
According to a study,
children who play with their pets have stronger immune systems.
Improved Physical Health
Raising children with a
pet improves their physical health, mainly because if a child has a pet, he or
she will jump around with it, which is considered exercise. So pets also improve
the physical and mental health of children.
Children also run around
while playing with animals and this makes them agile.
In today’s era, every
person is suffering from some kind of stress or mental anxiety, in view of
this, several research have revealed that pets can help the owner with peace
of mind as well as depression.
It is proven that if
children are exposed to animals from a young age, chances are high that they
will be protected from these diseases.
