    I guess I will say that my espirience was not as a childhood because my parents did not show me affect or love. That’s why I took this classes so I can learn more how to give more love and happines to my children.

    My Center doesn’t let us have animals. But, we have lots of books about animals of all kinds. We also encourage families to send a photo of their pets or visits to the zoo.

    Animals in the classroom are amazing. I had a pet bunny in a classroom of three-year-old preschoolers and the care they gave Sugar was astronomical. She was the cutest little white fluffy bunny ever with pink eyes. The children would take turns feeding Sugar and giving her water. when they were sad or frustrated, petting and holding Sugar would help them to calm down.

    Animals are an amazing opportunity to help children observe the different life styles and ways of expression. Showing children the different behaviors expands their knowledge and understanding of the world around them and what separates species. The way animals express their emotions, whether it be anger, sadness, joy, etc each animal has a different way of expressing those emotions. Doing so allows the children to understand different ways they can express their emotions and what those emotions look/feel like.

    My father is a great example of how a child can experience a lot of hardship when they are younger and have it impact their life when they are older. My father was neglected by his mother, saw his father commit suicide, and experienced many other hardships (lack of food, lack of money, lack of physical touch/love). As an adult my father never showed affection to me or my siblings. He is a very bitter, angry man. He never got the proper treatment for all that he experienced as a child and it has definitely carried over into adulthood. It is a very sad situation. He is always on the defense, he does not open up with others, and he does not communicate with others regarding a serious situation without being angry. He was never taught the basic skills of communication as he was always yelled at. I do feel it’s possible with the right treatment/intervention for a child who has experienced any type of neglect to be successful as an adult if they are willing to work for it.

    One of my daughter’s friends came to visit and was obviously upset. I was dealing with an upset little one and couldn’t comfort her at that moment. She sat on the floor, ready to cry, when our dog went over to her, sat on her lap, put her paws/head on her shoulders. The friend was comforted by our dog

    Yes. Children are able to learn the responsibilities, how to be caring and be gentle. Also children could make friendship with animals.

    Children can learn a lot from animals. A classroom pet is a great way for teachers to enhance their classroom and improve student learning and interaction.Having pets inside the classroom can enhance the learning environment. A regular math lesson can turn into a unique learning opportunity when the problem focuses on how much food their classroom pet eats in a day or how much it weighs.
