Kid Scared of Animals? 4 Tips to Help Your Child Feel Safe Around Furry Friends!

Many kids are afraid of animals, which can make play dates and events difficult if you visit a home with pets. Here are some tips to help your little one get comfortable! 

  • Start early! Introduce them to animals early on. If you don't have pets, visit friends or family with a gentle pet. 
  • Teach kids to be gentle. Use words like "nice" and "soft" as you show your baby how to pet an animal. 
  • Always be safe! As they get older, tell them never to approach an animal without their grownup and always ask for permission. 
  • Visit the zoo and read books about animals!

Watch out! Soon your child may want a pet of his own!
