HELP A CHILD ADOPT AN ANIMAL FRIEND.

Following on from the idea "introduce your child to an "invisible friend" here's another one to get children involved in making their very own "changes".

Perhaps your child has allergies or the landlord refuses to budge and allow them a pet.

Source out the nearest animal shelter and encourage your child to set up a separate money box to provide food and shelter for their newly acquired "adopted" animal/s. If your child is able, take them to visit the shelter and find out if they are permitted to visit on a regular basis to deliver their donations of money or food or even volunteer there.

Come back and tell us your story and post some pics.

      Thanks for sharing your story "C". More evidence is coming forward these days supporting the benefits of people dealing with illness, physical and mental, having contact with animals. It is beautiful to hear about and watch this unfolding.

      This is a wonderful idea!  (Thanks, Jean.)

      I lived in a household with a young lady (Danielle) with ADHD who adored animals -- even professing to want to be a veterinarian as an adult.  She was constantly "rescuing" animals around the complex; watching Animal Planet; and requesting new pets, but there was some concern that she'd shortly lose interest after their arrival.

      In a stroke of genius, her mother took her to a nearby shelter and signed her up as a volunteer.  Every Saturday, she and her mother would go there; Danielle would clean out the cages, etc., then spend about an hour just visiting/playing with the animals.

      It was the PERFECT answer!

      We've adopted endangered animals for the kids and it gives them a great sense of humanity. Asking them to put their own earned money aside for the cause really showed us they felt good about their action.
