4. Model kindness and compassion. Children imitate their parents. It's almost impossible to teach a child to respect animal life if we, as parents, do not first set an example.
Model the behavior you want to see. If you have pets, model how to care for, train and play with them. Set an example of how to respectful toward other people's pets. Be compassionate and merciful towards wildlife whenever possible. Use natural repellants and humane traps for your pest problems. If you model it, they'll imitate it.
