- Learning aid
Pets can help children in their learning. Educators have long used animals (mainly dogs) as a form of therapy in schools, using them to help children with developmental difficulties learn. In particular, animals can help children read. Research has shown that students who may be reluctant to read aloud at school feel more confident reading to animals because they see them as a non-judgmental buddy.
- Provides comfort and companionship
Pets offer comfort and companionship to kids. No matter what mood they are in, children find support and security from their animal companion, which often means they are less anxious or withdrawn.
- They keeps families talking
Having a pet helps to build family bonds as animals are often the focus of family activities. From walking the dog together to grooming or feeding the pet, these simple but enjoyable tasks allow everyone to slow down, enjoy each other’s company and communicate with one another.
