Today we're going to talk about the benefits of having a pet 🐶 in a family with #children 🧒🏻👶🏼.
There are many benefits to owning a pet:
💚 Pets teach children valuable life lessons like responsibility, trust, compassion, respect and patience.
💚 Both kids and pets enjoy high energy play as well as having a cuddle buddy during nap time.
💚 Pets can teach your child about respect - Requiring gentle touching and learning about boundaries when the pet is eating and sleeping will develop respect for others in young children, which is a difficult skill to learn at a young age.
💚 Pets are very loyal and a good example of how to treat others that are important to the child and the family.
