Kids Spend Quality Time With Pets As Corona Forces Life Indoors
Spending time with pets when staying indoors all day can help children develop non-verbal communication, compassion and empathy, say experts. Pets who are normally accustomed to outdoor activity can also benefit similarly from their indoor interactions with children, which can help to destress them.
With this view, VIBGYOR Group of Schools hosted a virtual workshop for students on Sunday, April 11, to mark Pet Day. In an interactive session Abodh Aras, CEO, Welfare for Street Dogs, taught students how to become responsible pet owners and how to take care of stray animals amid the lockdown. VIBGYOR students from Grades 4 to 8, from Gurugram, Vadodara, Surat, Lucknow, Nashik, and Indore participated in the hour-long virtual session.
