Joyful Spirituality: Kids + Pets
My husband and I believe kids need to relate to animals to grow up into balanced, caring adults who can relate and feel connected to the natural world not just technological society. Just watching our children’s delight in pets and farm animals confirmed how important animals were to their development and happiness.
We love animals almost as much as we love kids. That love has been a powerful source of energy transforming both animals and children into confident, intelligent beings with strong, unique personalities. Our livestock kept us entertained with their antics even more than our more traditional pets because well-loved farm animals want to part of the family, too.
