Conversely the use of animals is seen by many in the medical field as necessary. While it is not ideal to cause harm to animals it is a safer way to test new products compared to testing them on humans. Typical research and development will begin trials on rats. If those tests prove successful then another set of tests are conducted on monkeys. Once the tests are successful with monkeys then human testing begins. These tiered rounds of testing are used to reduce the amount of mistakes and negative side effects in all breakthroughs. It is argued that animal testing saves many lives and there is no alternative to testing on a living organism. In addition there are strict regulations for animal testing which prevent any mistreatment of the animals in question.
The world seems to be increasingly becoming a dangerous place; parents are increasingly worrying about their children and their safety. It’s a natural parental reaction to be protective, but realistically it is not possible to watch over your child all day, everyday. Pre-teen and teenage children need to see their friends and spend time away from their parents. All these independent activities are essential to the growth of identity. Your most important job is to keep your child as safe as you can without arousing tension and fear.
Today, kids need to be empowered with positive messages and safety skills that will build their self esteem and self confidence, while helping to keep them safe. Kids don’t need to be told the world is a scary place. Rather, they need to know their parents / guardian is there for them if they are in trouble; and most adults they encounter in their lives are basically good people.
