Tot Talk: Kids and Pets

Most parents will agree that children and pets are a good combination, whether you are a child or an adult. I have always believed that having a pet is the best way to relieve stress.  The video you are about to watch is Paige training Beacon how to fetch a ball.

When I was a child I had lots of pets. I'm a firm believer.....
that pets help children and adults by lowering heart rates, reduced blood pressure and help to lessen behavioural distress. I know that
I am always happier when Beacon is around me. Pet ownership is a great way to teach children responsibility, compassion and cooperation.

Paige is telling Beacon to stop whining, or she won't throw the ball.
You don't have to spend a fortune to have a wonderful pet. Growing up with all shorts of my pets, I had mix breeds and they were incredible pets. When I was young, I knew that if I could get my dad into the BC SPCA; I'd be going home to my mom with a brand new pet.  Children and pets do go together, pets are good listeners, have unconditional-love and they make wonderful playmates. I also heard that a pet can help increase vocabulary. That's pretty cool!

My sister just bought me this little bird the other day. I was thinking of getting a cat, but I don't think that would be a good idea anymore. Getting a cat would make me and the bird uncomfortable, don't you think? Ha ha  You might also like: Pet care for children
