Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!

Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life.

But Why?

Animals can help children


Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids.

1. Empathy

2. Self-esteem

3. Cognitive development

Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They don’t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, “conversing” with animals helps children fighting stutter.


4. Stress reduction

Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations.
