Having a pet at home can have numerous benefits for the family, including children. Caring for, and playing with, pets can have a positive influence on kids and contributes to their well- being. The benefits of having a pet cover a wide range of factors, e.g. mutual unconditional love and acceptance (between the child and pet). Most importantly, it helps kids develop a sense of care, love, support, acknowledgement and connection.
