"The tendency to cruelty should be watched in children and if they
incline to any such cruelty, they should be taught the contrary usage.
For the custom of tormenting and killing other animals will, by degrees,
harden their hearts even toward man. Children should from the beginning
be brought up in an abhorrence of killing or tormenting living beings."
