They can be used to build and boost self confidence in everyone, especially in children, women and elderly. Though the idea is innovative but it is truly effective. Read further to know more.
Getting Ready to Have Kids
There is this girl I knew who once got home a puppy. She was not really a dog person so I asked her why she got the dog at home. She answered to me that she was not sure if she could manage a baby, when she will have one. So, to practice taking care of an unpredictable “thing” she has got home a pet.
She took care of the dog all by herself despite of having a strained work schedule. She had to rush at a certain hour to feed the dog and then come again to take it out for a walk. The commitment that she made for taking care of the dog made her practice time management and also helped her to understand what it may feel like.
This helps one become confident and prepares the mind before getting into parenthood, making things easier.
Having a pet brings out parental feelings, a side of the personality which people hardly explore unless the actual day arrives.
Feeling of Self Assuredness
Having pets helps a person become more self assured. Getting a pet home is not an easy task. You know you can take responsibilities and practice time management. It will help you explore different sides of your personality.
Controlling the Situation
An animal will always remain an animal. Maintaining a control over an animal helps in dealing with unexpected situations. You learn to make decisions and deal with them on the spot. It gives confidence and a feeling of having command on unpredictable circumstances.
A good company is always a source of positive energy. Most of the people suffer from lack of confidence because of being alone.
Pets provide their owners with unconditional and unlimited affection and this instantaneously improves their self worth. The way they try to seek your attention will make you feel special and thus helps in increasing self confidence.
Women and elderly usually are at a higher risk of developing low self confidence due to lack of good companion.
Hence pets are highly suggested for women and elderly; most preferably birds and fishes.
Security Boosts Confidence
Those who keep dogs know what we are talking about. When we feel secure, we tend to feel more confident. This is especially applicable for the physically handicapped people. They will feel extremely secure if they keep dogs.
If the dog is well trained the physically handicapped person will fondly accept it as a companion. It will make them feel less dependent on others.
Self Development of Children
In order to build confidence in children they should be encouraged to take care of a pet. But make sure not to forcefully give an animal companion on the kid.
Pets make children understand responsibilities and the commitment helps them become a more confident individual.
There are many children who are shy to talk to strangers. Pets help them become more social and hence there is an increase in their self confidence.
Raising a pet gives you much more than just self confidence. It makes you feel happy. So, when are you getting home your companion?
