Why Students Should Learn to Be Kind to Animals

From a young age, compassion is something that should be stressed. All life on this planet is important and students should be taught that.

  • Teaching students compassion from a young age is something that is really important.
  • From generation to generation, teaching our kids how to appreciate life on this planet is very important.
