“Animals are such agreeable friends—they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.” Do you love animals? Do you think that animals help us by making us better human beings? Well, there is no doubt about the fact that animals do teach us about how to live in harmony with nature. I recently came across a post of child artist Lisha who is seen as Rudra in Yaaradi Nee Mohini where she is seen petting a calf.
Children usually show a close affinity towards animals as they like spending time and with animals. But kids are also unaware of their boundaries when it comes to playing and they overlook the fact that they could even hurt the animal in the process. As adults, it is our responsibility to teach them about animal caring. Here’s how you can do it…
1. Tour to the habitat
Take your kids to a wildlife sanctuary or a place where they can observe the animals in their natural habitat from a safe distance. Avoid taking them to places where they keep the animals in closed captivity. This will teach them that animals are at their best when they are free.
2. Feelings are important
Avoid doing or showing stuff to your kids that involve harming any animal. Also, if you see that your kid is pulling the ear or the tail of your pet, then make sure that you stop them from doing that while you also make them understand the fact that animals to have feelings.
Show them movies involving animals which will help them sympathise and relate to the feelings of animals. Showing them films, which have a strong human and animal bond as its central theme is also a good idea.
4. Bring home a pet
Consider bringing home a pet, else take them to a local animal centre. Also, try teaching your child ways to take care of animals.
Make sure that you make the child realises that animals are like the members of your family. Teach them to be considerate to them.
Teach your kids to love animals while you give them the space to evolve with animals.
