Psychologists point out that pets provide an emotional support to those who always have close relations with them; sometimes such kind of support is important even for members of the family, to say nothing of lonely people. And our children often become such 'lonely people' because their parents are too busy that they have no time for their children. The scientists believe that this support may be viewed as real psychotherapy that has a clear mechanism of impact.

James Serpell states that 'dumbness' of cats and dogs is an advantage rather than a drawback, as paradoxical as it may seem. Because in the process of interaction it is important not only what a person hears but how he or she is listened to. Therefore, the fact that animals listen and seemingly understand us but never ask questions or make judgments may be their most pleasant feature as companions.

This is even more true as far as children are concerned. Very often adults without even being aware of it hurt their children and provoke stress with their angry reprimands, shouts, criticism – ‘How many times have I told you?', ‘Again you!', 'Don't worry about this rubbish!'. But our state of mind is arranged in such a way that a person can't be preoccupied with negative emotions all the time and a child instinctively looks for a way out for them, for example, through crying. Meantime it may be much more useful for a child to interact with a pet. Looking at pet, whether it is a cat or a dog, a child receives psychological relief and support.

Just presence of an animal at home itself creates an atmosphere of psychological comfort for a child, because pets arouse positive emotions. Such emotions stimulate secretion of 'hormones of pleasure' that in turn create favorable conditions for work of the brain.

However, presence of a cat or dog at home may play a significant role in psychological and behavioral correction, especially for inadequate children. In families with the only child parents often complain about the child's hypererethism, capriciousness and sometimes even nervous breakdowns. So, there is a short advice: don't spoil your child.

Actually, the reason is different. Even if a child is not spoiled, nevertheless a child receives extra attention from all members of the family. The child's words and actions are always in the center of attention and therefore are thoroughly analyzed though adults don't even think about it. And it doesn't matter whether they praise the child or, on the contrary, criticize him. Both variants are bad because such 'fame trail' may be unbearable for a child's mind and may cause nervous breakdowns.

When a cat or a dog appears at home, part of attention immediately is switched to it even if parents are not aware of it. It's like a pet will shield a child attracting access attention of adults. And then positive effect of cat's or dog's presence will not to take long to appear. Besides, they will be excellent anti-stress companions for a child.

But pets are able to give children not only psychotherapeutic help. At present a new branch of medicine develops rapidly. It is energo-informational therapy. An effect of this therapy is gained by using electromagnetic waves of very high frequency and ultralow intensiveness that cause positive resonance in a human organism.

In the capacity of sources of corrective radiation special apparatus is used and… hands of bioenergotherapists otherwise called persons with extrasensory perception are also used. But a cat or a dog sitting on a master's lap or near him also radiate him or her with its electromagnetic waves. Therefore it is possible that their frequencies may resonate with human ones and thus eliminate energetic disorders. At the VII International conference on human and animal interaction problems held in Geneva that gathered over 600 scientists and medical practitioners there were described numerous cases when constant interaction with animals and, as a result, their energetic impact healed people.

Living together of pets and children is not just possible, but also advisable. For children already able to walk, cats as any other animals may be like teaching aid: a child will be looking after pets, taking care of them. Children are taught to understand living creatures and they also gain confidence in themselves by bearing responsibility for pets, for example feeding the animals.

Living together with a cat, children get to know that they have to watch their pets closely in order to save attachment and faith to each other: don't disturb your kitten, while it is sleeping; permit it to walk out-of-home, don't restrain your kitten and force it to sit on your knee and don't dress your kitten. Some psychologists state that friendship of a child with a cat promotes better understanding of future wife or husband.

It is impermissible to taunt at cats. Maybe that's why cats get on well to people and they are so calm and sensible.

Children aged from 3 to 6 should be comfortable seated and only then you may allow them to hold a cat. Otherwise, they may have problems with cats. Children like to pat cats. That's why there should be adults near a child in the room. Because if a child pulls a cat's tail, pulls a cat's fur or accidentally steps on a cat, a cat may mount an attack (aggression that is caused by pain).

You have to explain your children that in any case they should treat cats how they want to be treated and then set an example.
Cats are tender and if you want to bring up well-mannered cat, your kitten should feel safe.

If you are going to buy a cat for your children, first of all personally you should like this idea but not only your children. Because there should be one adult who will be responsible for a cat in the family. It shouldn't be only your child's affair.

Teach your child to ask permission before petting other cats. Children often put their hands in their mouths and you should remember that cats as well as other animals out of your house can be a source of infection of different diseases.

Cat in the house is a pleasure for a child. Under the direction of clever parents a child will be taught of kind treatment to cats and will protect cats as weaker living beings.

Don't forget that your cat is also member of your family and you should treat it the same way your children. Teach your child to respect your cat and other animals. Teach your child to respect all living creatures and then, when they will be grown-ups, the world will be kinder than today.
