Ever since he was little I'd take him to the farm and wildlife park, as we were season ticket holders. At first I thought it was just because he was young.
Friday he came home with some homework, which said write about an animal you are interested in. Well he said he wasn't going to do it because he doesn't like any of them.
He is a very bright boy, who likes to do homework normally.
I tried to suggest various animals but his eyes glazed over and he stopped listening. The only thing he was mildly interested in was the beavers, because I told him that a beaver builds dams - and he is into construction so he felt they had a small connection.
Does anyone know how I can get him to appreciate animals, he doesn't have to like them - but he needs to know that animals are necessary, as are plants for the ecosystem of the planet? I guess if there is a good website that someone is using that is interactive - then he might take something in.
I'm asking for help here, because most kids i know love animals and he just doesn't like or appreciate any.
Cheers and rep for anyone with good ideas.
