Pets play a crucial role in nurturing kindness in children. Through the bond with their pets, kids develop empathy, compassion, and responsibility. The emotional connection formed with pets promotes emotional intelligence and reduces stress, enhancing their ability to respond to others with kindness. In essence, pets act as catalysts for character development, instilling qualities that extend beyond the pet-human relationship, shaping children into more empathetic and considerate individuals. Adding a pet to the family can be an investment in nurturing a future kindness champion.
My son has asked for a pet for a long time. But, due to limited space at home and due to our lifestyle, we don’t have a pet at home in Singapore. But whenever we visit Sri Lanka, our child gets the opportunity to spend time with the pets of his relatives.
I was away from the blog for a few weeks and even didn’t join T Tuesday and other link parties. We had to visit Sri Lanka again due to a family emergency. Though we adults engaged in some urgent family matters, my son had a happy time with other children from the families who gathered in our homes.
I captured few photos of him when he was with pets.
I could see how he was happy when he touched pets. He also engaged in giving food for them.
He also had great time in Sri Lanka though we had some busy few days.
On our way to my parents’ home, we stopped for tea and snacks. Son wanted a coke and it was in a glass bottle. I remember those glass bottles as a child. But, in recent years I only found coke in plastic bottles. On this trip, I found Coke and other soft drinks in glass bottles. It was good for a quick capture. May be companies have understood the importance of reusable glass bottles.
We never forget to taste Sri Lankan black tea whenever we are in Sri Lanka.
Finally, after a one-week trip in Sri Lanka, we are back in Singapore. Once we arrived at Changi Airport, child was happy to have a Mcdonalds’ treat from the outlet at the airport. So, now he is in a mood to go to the school next day.
Do you like pets? I had cats as pets in my childhood and those moments bring me great memories. Please share your experience with pets too.
