The family pet

Happy summer holidays! Here in the UK it really feels like summer at last - with the kids off school and the weather suddenly hot.

If you are doing your travelling early in the summer, or if you're not going away this year, the summer holidays are a great time to get a pet for your kids.

One of the best ways for a child to learn responsibility is to let them care for a pet. By showing your children what it takes to be responsible for a living creature’s survival they are actually learning important social skills. A child who learns to care for a pet and treat it kindly and with patience will learn to treat people the same way.

Check out The Family Pet for some ideas on choosing the right animal for your household.
