Do you want your child to know more about the legislative process while teaching kindness and empathy? THLN is proud to host this FREE webinar entitled, "How Kids Can Get Political for Animals!" This webinar will discuss laws that protect animals in Texas including local ordinances, how a bill becomes a law and the current bill we are working to pass that gives basic shelter to dogs that live outside. If you are interested in teaching your child advocacy, how to use his or her voice for others who have none and raising a humane child in challenging times, this is the perfect webinar.
The lesson is one hour designed specifically for kids ages 9-13.
We use a cross-discipline approach that combines social studies, politics, writing, and advocacy. Children trained to extend justice, kindness and mercy to animals become more just, kind and considerate in their relations to each other. Character training along these lines will result in more humane and law abiding men and women of broader sympathies. We'll conclude by asking your child to write a letter to their State Representative and/or State Senator. These letters will be shared on our social media so your child's compassion and advocacy can be seen and appreciated by animal advocates across the state.
Please note: We will talk about animal cruelty. Please trust your own judgement as to how your child will manage this. We seek to teach and discuss, and certainly not to traumatize.
