The fact that parents need to teach kids the right way of interacting with pets remains.
No, neither. Yawning does equal boredom in dogs, it's an appeasement signal and a sign of stress. Tail wagging can mean a vast range of things from appeasement to outright aggression, depending on the position of the tail, how it moves, and how fast.
