I absolutely hate when kids behave that way towards animals because the parents don't think it's necessary to teach their kids how to behave around animals. But I have even more when the parents don't even tell their kids off about their behaviour. I had Rocky in my arms once in a pet shop and there was this kid with a balloon on a stick in front of me. As he turned around and saw Rocky he tried to hit him with the balloon a couple of times. I was soo shocked about how rude this kid and the parents found it funny....... Absolutely hate this especially if seeing their were just about to buy him a guinea pig....:/

I am part of a generation that was never taught respect. Many of my peers do not have manners and don't care for others. The generation younger than me is even worse.

My parents probably spoil me, and they always have. The difference is I was disciplined. I knew right from wrong. My parents didn't cater to my every whim. I was taught manners and to respect every living thing. My parents would never tolerate me not saying please or thank you, let alone throwing something at a defenseless dog. I was also taught the value of the things I got. I was raised to me motivated, to value education and civic responsibility. Many of my peers were not. And now they are raising their children the same way.

It doesn't matter if they were raised around dogs, it's a matter of respect.

My daughter came over last summer with my 2 grand kids and her friend and her 2 kids well we were all outside in the yard and at that time Charlie was just a tin pup. and my daughters friends child kicked poor Charlie like he was a football sent hin flying about 4 feet . I flipped It took everything I had not to hit someone elses child but I'm telling you that kid will never hurt another animal thats for sure. I sat him down and had a very long talk about what he thinks it would feel like if a giant came along and kicked him like he kicked Charlie and then asked him if he would like flyig through the air after being kicked that hard in the tummy and landing on the ground with a big thud 10 ft away. he was 4 yrs old so I;m sure the visualization was very amaginative.. He started to cry and said how sorry he was I said are you ever going to do that again and he said not ever I didn't know it would hurt him. I told him that animals are just like us they hurt like we do and if you think that something might hurt you then it will hurt an animal too. He said he was so sorry and he even appoligized to Charlie which I thought was kind of cute. The Mom didn't say a word the whole time I was talking to her son but she listened maybe I taught her something as well.

Pat, I love how you handled the situation!! I would probably do the same thing. I get so upset when parents neglect to teach their children respect, unfortunately often because respect isn't a part of their parents lives either. It saddens me as well to see how society is going downhill. Like Ashley said I look forward to having children of my own someday to teach them how to properly treat animals, as my parents did for me. People thought I was spoiled, but I never took anything for granted, and never asked for anything. Family was always more important to me than materialism, and these days you rarely see that anymore. =(

So sorry that you had to experience that Kathleen; I'm glad that Zari wasn't hurt by that boys behavior. Shame on him; AND on the grandmother!!!

I have a service animal and the behavior toward him sometimes is atrocious. (Douglas is now being trained with the goal of being a service dog eventually.)

I've had kids and even adults come up and grab him, pull on him, squeeze his head...everything you could think of. They don't ask to touch him, they just do- and I have had the same problem with Douglas. Unlike my service animal, Bode, Douglas will bite- and has tried.

Bode doesn't do anything when people are mean, he's an angel, just yawns and squints and burrows against me. But it makes me want to kill them.

I also get rude comments to him (he's a ferret...) and he gets called names. So rude. He is a working animal. You do not touch working animals, for one, and two, he's better behaved and cleaner than your children. The parents often laugh when children abuse my little one.

Absolutely sickening.

We were at my husbands family reunion, and I had my puppy Panzer with me. Hubby's cousin's 6 year old little girl is notoriously naughty, she is adorable but gets away with murder. She was following Panzer all over, and kept trying to give him a shoe, mostly harmless, just annoying. Then she picked up a stick and hit him in the face. I flew over a table, snatched the stick and said loudly "You do NOT hit a puppy with a stick! Where is your mother!!!". Everyone there froze, no one moved, her mom stood up and took her aside, and explained that animals should not be hit. The little terror(I actually love her to bits, she is ADORABLE just wild.) came over and apologized to Panzer and I a little while later. We have never had a problem since, and her parents watch her like a hawk now when she is around my dogs. It was really embarrassing, but if I hadn't said anything no one would have. I get so damn mad when people let their children run wild, especially when it comes to animals. I have raised my toddler to be caring and gentle, and always respect an animals space. Even though he is very gentle, I would still never leave him alone with one, even ours, he is a child and needs supervision for his own safety as well as our pets. Children need to be taught how to be loving, patient, caring, and gentle. It baffles me that some people don't understand that.
