Regrann from @belinda_vegan - Teaching children to have compassion and empathy for their #furry, feathered, and finned friends is vital to preventing cruelty to #animals. In an effort to teach children of all ages that #kindness—toward all species, races, and genders—matters.
This means teaching our #children not to participate in speciesism. It's vital that we teach children to love ALL animals, not just the ones we call #pets; #cats and #dogs. And that means teaching our children to keep them off their plates.
Teaching children to care for and #respect animals will make the world not only a kinder place but also a safer one. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals don’t stop there—many of them move on to their fellow humans. According to Robert K. Ressler, who developed profiles of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, murderers “very often start out by killing and torturing animals as #kids.” Fostering positive, #caring relationships between children and animals won’t improve just animals’ well-being, but the well-being of other humans as well as animals.
Every #child has the ability to practice kindness by lending a helping hand to animals. There are numerous ways that children—and adults—can be heroes to animals in their communities. You can ask your neighbor to let a chained dog inside, take a homeless cat to a shelter, or report animal abuse to local authorities. You can adopt from an animal shelter instead of buying from a breeder or pet store. You can opt not to chain or crate an animal, always spay and neuter, and be sure to replace lids on glass jars, close trash cans securely, and cut up plastic six-pack rings to ensure that garbage doesn’t become a death trap for animals in the water.
ANIMALS ARE NOT OURS
to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.
