Puppy love is good for kids
Some teachers have now introduced pets into the classroom to positively stimulate the social integration and social competence of children. Children with learning disabilities and behavioural disorders such as autism, for example, show immediate benefits from animal assisted therapy. Pets As Therapy is a charity which arranges the visits of pets to hospitals (and residential homes) so that those in need can benefit.
