By nature, man perceives all living things positively. And only with time, gaining experience, is aware of the danger of some animals. When a baby appears in the family, parents have a difficult task: to teach the child safe behavior next to the representatives of the animal world.
When parents talk about the dangers of "animal brotherhood", it is worth carefully dispensing information. If you downplay the danger - communication with the animal can harm the baby (bite, scratch, scare). And if you exaggerate - you can instill a total fear that will paralyze a person in later life with each meeting with an insect or pet.
Explain to the kid that every little bug in the world is needed for something. If possible, it is necessary to abandon the division into "useful" and "harmful." If possible, show him a real spider, a caterpillar, a butterfly, an ant. Tell that dangerous are those who are frightened or offended.
The expressions "Fu, how disgusting" from the mouth of adults immediately are a signal to action! And the child seeks to crush "filth". But after all, the character begins to develop here with such trifles, when with an understanding of one's own power over someone, the awareness of the harm of the manifested violence must also grow. You do not want your child to further offend the younger ones? Then explain with the example of insects that you can not do this!
It is very exciting to feed the pigeons in the park. But here comes the time to go to the zoo, and the kid immediately rushes to the big cage with hawks and shoves bread through the bars of the lattice. This is fraught with consequences! Therefore, explain that large birds can very painfully peck. However, small ones can do it. Even parrots should be approached slowly, so that he would not have a reason to be frightened and try to protect himself from an imaginary threat. Try to teach your child how to endure, ride and maintain a safe distance around any birds.
Hamsters, rats, guinea pigs in a cage look pretty cute. But this does not mean that if you try to pick them up, they will not bite. Small rodents are well oriented with the help of smells. Therefore, they can not be taken on their hands, if before that something was tasty for them. Just like birds, rodents do not like sudden movements and may be afraid of them. Well, the result of fright can be a sharp painful bite.
Pets are a good thing. But when your child comes to visit, be sure to explain that someone’s dog or cat may refuse to contact. Pay attention to the baby that dogs with a big joy twist the tail, and cats - on the contrary. A cat whose tail walks back and forth on the floor should be avoided. Even if it is played with something, it is better to stay away - traces of scratches will take more than one day ...
Many owners consider it normal to walk their dogs without a muzzle. This results from the fact that the pet "does not bite". Of course, he will not bite them! They feed and water it every day. But is it possible to be so confident in others? Suddenly the smell does not like or something else? If you are not ready to trust strangers and rely on the will of heaven, then take your children away from such walks.
Domestic animals deserve special attention. Their diseases sometimes cannot be classified, let alone a sudden manifestation of aggression! Explain to your child that animals can scratch or bite a person from evil, so do not tease or run around them.
Adders, stinging insects and wild rodents deserve special mention. If there are representatives in your region whose bite can lead to serious problems with the health of the child, then you should take enough time to get to know them. Find their photos, show the video, take them to the terrarium. Let your child know what to do and where to go if dangerous animals appear near.
