If pet-relation can cure, imagine the impact of mother-child relation. Effect is beyond human imagination.
Go. Better late than never. Establish new relation with mother i.e. गौमाता!
Spend time with her until you die or she. She is mother. She can take care of you forever.
I shared here many times that worshipping Gau mata is superb medicine that cures not only physical body but also our energy footprints and mind.
Check this study how mere having Pet @ home helps Autistic children.
If a pet can do wonder, imagine mother’s impact. 🙂 (Y)
Try this: If you know anyone suffering from psychological disorder, ask him/her to spend 15 days @ Gau shala, taking care of Gau mata. Worth trying. I have seen change in few people.
PS: Park your ‘Sameness’ logic aside. All pets are same is good but individual’s capacity does matter.
Pets May Help Improve Social Skills Of Children With Autism
Having a family pet can be beneficial for child development in a number of ways, including keeping kids active and promoting empathy, self-esteem and a sense of responsibility. But dogs may be particularly beneficial for kids with autism, acting as a “social lubricant” that helps them build assertiveness and confidence in their interactions with others, according to new research from the University of Missouri.
The researchers surveyed 70 families with autistic children between the ages of eight and 18, all of whom were patients at the MU Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Nearly 70 percent of the participating families had dogs, half had cats, and some owned other pets including fish, rodents, rabbits, reptiles and birds.
The study’s lead author Gretchen Carlisle, a research fellow at the University of Missouri, observed that autistic children are were likely to engage socially in social situations where pets were present. While previous research has focused specially on the ways that dogs benefit the development of autistic children, Carlisle found that pets of any type were beneficial for the childrens’ social skills.
“When I compared the social skills of children with autism who lived with dogs to those who did not, the children with dogs appeared to have greater social skills,” Carlisle said in a statement. “More significantly, however, the data revealed that children with any kind of pet in the home reported being more likely to engage in behaviors such as introducing themselves, asking for information or responding to other people’s questions. These kinds of social skills typically are difficult for kids with autism, but this study showed children’s assertiveness was greater if they lived with a pet.”
