We have to encourage the education of children regarding compassion to animals,responsability as owners ,protection of nature in general and regarding family, the value of elders /older people,respect towards every other person,respect to institutions that care for life,the value of family relations that doesn't just include father,mother and kids but every member of it.Many times including good friends. Children need to know they BELONG to grow SECURE. If parents disappear ,they should have the support of the rest of the family.Keep family together is priority.(divorced or not- talking about good relations as humans)A well cared kid will be a loving human.Open to care for animals and every living being.Respectful and willing to make things well.Schools should teach about all of this and family should help schools and make their part home.One will not make it without the other.

I signed the petition I think is a wonderful idea.It should become a universal practice.Unfortunately there are parents who neither love nor respect animals,consequently their children foillow their example This could be avoided by teaching children love and compassion for animals as a part of the school curriculum .Perhaps we can develop a generation of people who will abhor the brutal practice of animal hunting.

This should definately be enforced in schools all around the country, as it helps them understand better and be more aware of what's going on with animals around the world, who knows, maybe they could be the ones that will make the world a better place for animals, I hope.

Great idea! Childhood is when the ideas of live and compassion must be planted so we don;t have to deal later with the consequences of the lack of them and then it's too late.
