Not all kids seem like they would be suitable to cope with the responsibility of a pet, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have one.
Just because your child’s personality doesn’t seem to have high degrees of routine and responsibility as part of their natural makeup, doesn’t mean that you can just let those things slide.
Part of our role as a parent is to help our children with those areas of weakness, and things like responsibility and routine and rules are all apart of the bigger picture of growing up.
Using pets to help teach our kids these life lessons make the process easier and more fun. And your kids won’t necessarily realise they are learning something important while they are having fun with their new plaything.
