Kind Kids

Tails That Teach provides in-school presentations to students in grades K-2. Our focus is to teach kids the kind care of pets and to uniquely reinforce positive attitudes, build self-esteem, and develop social/emotional growth. We do this by showing children how their actions directly impact others by paralleling the needs and similarities of pets and people through a variety of age-appropriate materials and activities to engage students.

The presentation is an ideal supplement during Kindness Week, Anti-Bullying Week, or anytime and includes a book reading from the author, Lisa Wiehebrink. Signed books are available to each student and a set of books are donated to the school library.

“Statistics show that fostering strong bonds between kids and pets provides them with a solid foundation to practice and build positive relationship skills. Teaching young children to be kind to all living things will most certainly curb adolescent bullying, domestic abuse, and animal abuse.”
