I don’t know about you, but when I see a child with an animal, it lightens up my world, it is my euphoria. I don’t understand why anybody with a beating heart would torture their animals at home. You are supposed to care for animals, not torture them. Just like a child, animals need to be nurtured and cared for. They have feelings. If you cannot care why put the responsibility on yourself. My Frenchie had babies and I fell in love with her litter, but knowing that I was unable to provide them with all the joy in life, why would I keep them. This applies to children too, why get pregnant, adopt, or foster a child or infant if you are unable to? An animal or child will love you unconditionally, despite how bad you may be. If you treat a dog properly they will give you their heart in return, and you will gain a life companion that will stick with you no matter how low the funds get, or how upset you are.
domestic abuse is directed toward the helpless, animal abuse and child abuse often go hand in hand. Parents who neglect an animal’s need for proper care or who abuse animals might also abuse or neglect their own children. Animal abuse can be a significant indicator of child abuse, the parent isn’t always the one hurting the animal. Children who abuse animals might be repeating a lesson that they learned at home; abused children might learn from their parents to react to anger with violence. Their violence might be directed at the only individuals in the family who are more vulnerable than they are: animal companions. Children in violent homes are characterized often contributing in pecking-order battering, in which they might injure or kill an animal. Domestic violence is the most common background for childhood cruelty to animals.
However, if a parent, or someone who is supposed to care for an animal they are not, then it is logical to think, personally, that they may be doing the same to children. No one should get hurt. I don’t care if the child spilt all their cereal or if the dog done a pee on the carpet; it was a mistake. Teach don’t abuse.
