Mom, Dad, I want a pet

Posted: August 8th, 2013 | Author: | Children

Sooner or later, there is a moment in the life of every family when child asks for a pet. It very often happens that the first impulse of every parent is to scream or rebuff, however, it is worth considering how much a good pet can bring to a child. Of course, the first and indisputable criterion is whether anyone in the family is allergic to animal fur, a child in particular.

If not it is a great chance for a child to learn something valuable while caring for the pet. First of all, your child will learn to be Responsible for another alive creature, because the possession of animals brings duties, such as feeding, taking for a walk or taking care of its cleanness. But not only the duties are important, because dog, cat or another darling can teach you love, give joy and you can also use it to learn and have fun.

Clinging to a pet, a baby calms down and becomes quiet. It becomes more independent by feeding and taking pet for walk, a child is also more tolerant and able to make decisions. If there’s no opportunity to have a fur animal pet at your home the solution is an aquarium. In this case a child learns responsibility, because it will have to feed its fish, change them water (with parents). Looking at the fish floating peacefully in the green also calms. If you have the conditions at your home home, it’s really worth saying yes to your child when he or she asks for a pet.
