Role-Playing: When Your Child Wants a Pet


When your child begs for a dog or cat and promises to take care of it, Baby Toolkit has a great suggestion:

If your child wants a dog, BEGS for a dog, and you don't want to shoulder the entire responsibility for a pet, test the child's promises to "take care of the dog." Make an agreement. If your child will wake at a specified earlier time and then "walk" the imaginary dog (10 to 20 minutes) every day for 21 days that you will then begin seriously considering getting a pet. I'd make it a month of walking because that's how long it takes to establish a habit.

The same role-playing can go for feeding the pet, changing the litterbox or bird cage liner, freshening their water--any responsibilities you want your child to assume.

Pets Improve Our Health


According to Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Alerts, pets improve our mental and physical health. "Dogs and cats, even a tankful of fish, calm frazzled nerves and ease anxiety and depression, according to research."


One reason is that pets alter our behavior. When they are near, we tend to calm down and speak more slowly and softly. All types of pets offer distractions from the worries of the day, because we naturally shift our attention to them when they are around. Pets also provide an opportunity to touch and stroke another living thing, which has been shown to be of value to our mental and physical health.
