Are your kids begging for a pet? Watch this before bringing Fido or Fluffy home, so you can help your children understand how to care for an animal.
Most kids will beg for a pet at some point. And it's actually a really wonderful lesson for children to learn about responsibility and caring for pets. One of the more simple tasks is just helping putting water in the bowl everyday. Just like their own toys, they can help put the pet's toys away as well. Depending on the pet, they can help with brushing and grooming, of course, supervised. Teaching how to care for a pet really helps instill a valuable skill set.
