Children and Dogs – Keeping Them Safe Through Education and Training

Some studies have shown that nearly half of all dog attacks in the United States involve children under the age of 12. Children of ages 5 through 9 seem to have the highest rate of dog bite related injuries with the rate decreasing as they age. Nearly two thirds of the injuries to children 4 years old and younger are to the head and neck area. Dog bite incidents seem to increase during the summer months when dogs and people spend more time outdoors.

Educating young children about the precautions they need to take around dogs can help keep them safe. In my home town, our one and only Animal Control Officer goes into our schools, along with a local dog trainer, and gives presentations to children about how to care for, treat, and respect dogs and other pets. Because of this, our rate of animal abuse carried out by children has declined dramatically.

Children can relate to and need guidance in their relationship with animals. Most dog bites to children can be avoided by teaching the kids some simple rules:

1. Never approach a strange dog without asking the owner if they can pet it.
2. Never approach a dog chained or tied up to anything.
3. Never look a strange dog in the eyes.
4. Never tease or otherwise annoy any dog.
5. Treat all dogs with respect, gentleness and caring.
6. Never try to take a toy or treat away from a dog.
7. Never approach a dog while it is eating.

Other precautionary steps parents can take are:

1. Teach your children to interpret body language of dogs. If you don’t know and understand dogs’ body language yourself, it would be wise to study up a little on it. Dogs communicate everything to us through their body language. It is very important to learn and understand the subtle signs of a dog that indicate stress, fear, happiness, patience, protection, submission, dominance, and calmness.

2. Never leave a young child alone with any dog, even a family dog you have trusted for years.

3. Do not allow any kind of animal abuse from tail pulling to more drastic situations. Animal abuse carried out by children can be a sign of deep-seated emotional problems that should be dealt with immediately. If not dealt with, this can lead to more aggressive abuse carried over to humans.

4. Teach your children to respect and humanely treat all animals. Teach them the importance of passing this on to their friends.

5. Tell your children if they ever see anyone hurting an animal they are to tell an adult whom they trust. It is not okay to hurt any animal in any situation.

Dog owners should also be held responsible for their dogs’ actions. If they acquire the dog as a puppy, they should socialize it with all kinds of people young and old, people with hats, short and tall, and other dogs. Also, every dog should be trained either professionally or by the owner if they have dog training experience. Dogs should not be kept tied up and should always be on leash or under absolute control while in public. They should never be allowed to wander free on their own.

If you acquire an older dog from a rescue organization, it is even more important to get appropriate positive training, since most dogs are taken to a shelter because of behavioral problems. If your dog shows aggressive behavior, don’t wait until it advances to the point of someone getting hurt. Seek out professional training at the first sign.

Children should never be victims of dog bites. If parents, dog owners, and children themselves could learn and practice these simple rules, there would be no need to consider banning breeds. Children would grow up to promote the humane and healthy treatment and respect of the animals God has given us for our companionship and unconditional love.

Home Business Education and the Most Important Lesson to Build Huge Profits

” I will offer to free your mind. I will open the door for you. But it is your choice to walk through”…John Milton Fogg

The previous blog has have shown how few people ask about home business education when looking for a home business. The shocking ratio based on Google Keywords AdWords Search is out of 3000 home business searches only 1 person also is looking for some education how to start a home business and what to do.

How crazy is that..in the same category as driving a car without a license or building a home without a blueprint or charting a trip without a map or getting married to someone with no previous relationship..all very scary and crazy and highly prone to unfulfilled expectations and failure.

And yet, it would seem, people somehow assume, or are hyped to believe, they can earn a professional 5 or 6 digit income in a home business without applying some initial fundamentals. Do they rely on others to take the roles, hold the reins, and stand under a guru’s charisma long enough to see the “enlightened pathway.”

This may work in some businesses but not in a network marketing home business based on massive duplication of a simple plan that everyone can democratically pass on.

So here’s the most important lesson you need to know in two parts

Part 1. Visualize and draw your Keep it Simple Circle

Start by drawing a circle..about the size of a small orange.. no need to be perfect.
Inside it draw a small stick figure.
Outside it draw a similar sized stick figure.
Inside the circle write the letter S as large as you can to fit into the circle. S stands for SIMPLE.
Outside the circle write as small a letter S as you can beside the stick figure.
Turn the letters S into dollar signs.

Fundamental Lesson learned: The more simple the business plan the more money you will make. If you are outside the Simple Circle, following something more complicated, the less money you will make…

Part 2. List the 3 essential parts of a simple home business plan

Draw another similar circle.
Divide it into 3 parts ..more or less equal..don’t worry about being perfect or analytical.
The GOOD NEWS is there are only 3 parts that EACH represent an important part of your home business.
Print ONE WORD in EACH of the 3 sections

  • Part 1. EDUCATE
  • Part 2. CONTENT
  • Part 3. MAKE A DECISION

So far, this should be totally clear. Now lets add a few details. Write these words outside the circle and connect them to the right section:

  • EDUCATE…facts…training
  • CONTENT…company…website
  • MAKE A DECISION…ROAD MAP TO SUCCESS

You have just created a beautiful mind map with two circles that represent the tremendous potential of this unique home business. You can now build your dreams on something very real, very action orientated and very democratic. Absolutely everybody can do this.

Is there anyone who cannot do this home business plan? You need a phone and computer.
Is there anything missing or incomplete? Use the Mini-Program for Maxi-Profits as a comprehensive overview of facts and training.

Is there any other way to simplify this home business plan? Show me.

Is there any other way to build substantial residual profits over and over again?

WHAT ABOUT YOUR COST and TIME?

EDUCATION. $25 for Mini-Program for Maxi-Profits (one hour)

CONTENT. (time factor will vary here)
Replicated company’s website, back office, marketing tools…NO COST…auto shipment of valuable health product..basis for commission starts from $40 monthly

MAKE A DECISION…ONE PAGE read and share summary replicated website..ROAD MAP to SUCCESS…NO COST (30 minutes to read)

If this isn’t the most exciting lesson plan you’ve ever seen for a successful home business…then maybe you’re not ready to be a home-based entrepreneur. Maybe you want to take more time to do more research..and there’s lots of resources are available.

But if you see how this two circles relate and how simple it is to duplicate residual profits you should be jumping for joy. Financial freedom is truly at your fingertips.

WHO should be jumping for joy?

People with no time, and who work full time jobs

People with no background in sales

People who have never started a home-based business

People who don’t have a lot of extra time

People who are money motivated

People who value spending more time with their families

People who need extra retirement income

People who hate their jobs, and want out of the rat race

People who like their job, but who just need a little money

People who like making money the easy way.

If you see yourself on this list, then why not get started today?
