Only then can we become kinder and give their heat to the surrounding. Everything you need to go only by honest, work hard, cultivate willpower. How to ensure that children are listened to and heard us? Only through kindness. "

And our son Dima with any illness came to be treated in our ailurophile. Right in the cage rests on the floor, a cat on all sides swarmed, and in 20-30 minutes, he feels a tremendous burst of energy. You should never drive away the cat, if you pribludy ".
