Good evening dear virtual friends, I hope you had a nice day. I, like any mom, spend my days mostly at home, with the kids and housework. My kids aren't bored even when they're home because they have two pets, Enca i Lenu which I wrote about some time ago.
Today, during the day, Enzo decided to rest, leaned back in his seat and fell asleep. After a while, Lena woke him up for some reason, and he was angry and furious because he didn't get enough rest, he jumped on Lena and scratched his teeth a little. It’s such a normal thing between two puppies living together, but not for my son who loves them so much. Then the plot started and a hundred and one questions and questions. Why did he do that, why did she wake him up, does he know that it hurts her, does she know that he won't grow up if he doesn't sleep ...?
In the middle of the last century, research was started, which proves time and time again that the relationship between a child and a dog is of great importance and that a dog greatly influences the formation of a person's personality. Experts see life with a pet and growing up with it as a constant opportunity to learn about responsibility, develop empathy, selflessness and unconditional love.
The dog in the house is a huge support to the child. The mutual attraction of a child and a dog is a natural given based on mutual openness and sincerity, especially emotional connection. The child is not afraid of the dog and sees him as a friend. The fear that some people have, I personally think, was formed under the influence of fears of adults or some unpleasant situations for which adults are responsible again. The positive effects of the relationship between a child and a dog are manifold. The child learns to be responsible for the other, learns to manage his behavior and to control it, which, you will admit, is one of the important social components. With a pet, the child feels important and special, which strengthens his self-confidence and self-esteem.
The fact is that a dog and a child can develop strong trust, and this component of their relationship has also been used in therapeutic programs with children who have social or psychological difficulties. On the Internet, you can find countless examples of children who were completely closed, who refused any form of communication, but with the presence of a dog made the first important steps that allowed the continuation of therapy. Also, animals, especially dogs, have the ability to kill hyperactive or aggressive children if the child and dog are taught to behave appropriately towards each other.
When my Lazar is sad, angry, in a bad mood, Lena is always by his side, when he is happy she jumps next to him. Enco still doesn't know, he's very small, but the love between Lazar and Lena is amazing.
I don't know if you knew that it was scientifically proven that:
the child next to the dog feels safe and protected,
spending time with a dog encourages the development of speech and helps the child to understand his own feelings and motives,
dogs are often intermediaries in a child's relationship with the adult world,
spending time with a dog develops in children a sense of responsibility for themselves and others,
the child indirectly learns to solve his problems by identifying with the dog and solving his problems,
spending time with a dog helps the child to discover and show their positive sides,
children who develop a positive relationship with a dog find it easier to communicate with people and better understand and interpret non-verbal communication in interpersonal relationships,
is less likely to cause allergic reactions in children growing up with animals.
In order for the relationship with pets to have a positive impact on both the child and the pet, the attitude and behavior of the parents, who should actually be good models for their children, is of crucial importance. The parental role is especially important in teaching children to treat dogs properly - how to approach them, how to pet them, what to do or not do, how to behave depending on the current mood of the dog or what the dog likes or not nice. Some recommendation is that if a child is younger than three years old he should never be left alone with a dog because such small children do not have a developed sense of how they can hurt another being. We don't have that problem, Lazar is very gentle and cuddly, he likes to run and cuddle with his dogs at home, but if I leave him alone with them I risk that he will eat their food, bend over to drink water from their bowl and so on. .
Allow your children, if you have the conditions, to grow up with pets. There is nothing more beautiful or more sincere love than this between a child and a dog. I hope you enjoyed this article, that you enjoyed reading it and watching pictures of my son enjoying it with his pets. I wish you a pleasant rest of the evening. Regards to all @Jigglyspy
