This is a really great idea. Ive thought about this before, when Ive seen a child not being very nice to a animal. Of course I would try to set them straight about how to treat an animal. I know alot of children dont get taught at home. Ive always taught my own children since they were very young how animals need to be treated, and I have never seen or heard of them being unkind ,they love animals very much to this day and Im sure they always will. I think that teaching kids in school from the start is the best thing they could do , and it certainly would not hurt. I hope this is something that is something that is decided to be started, it will more than likely help in the years ahead, Im sure it would help with alot of the kind of violence that goes on now. PLEASE say yes to this.
