Many times parents will not allow their children to have pets for one reason or another. Most of the time it’s because the child will become bored with the pet and the parents will end up taking care of it. There are all sorts of reasons for allowing a child to have a pet. Pets can ease a child’s loneliness. They can teach a child responsibility and also unconditional love. Pets can also teach a child lessons about birth and death. Pets can help children relate to other people in their lives. A child can also learn about the costs involved in owning a pet.

There are many reasons why pets are not only good for adults but are good for the children as well. So when your son or daughter, is inquiring about a pet or visits a local pet store wishing that they could own one of those cute little puppies or kittens in the cages, why not take them down to the local shelter and consider adopting a pet? You and your child won’t regret it.

Remember, your pets count!
