9 amazing benefits of pets for kids

dc930929_19110610For many people, their fondest childhood memories involve pets. Whether it is a dog, goldfish, pony or toad the value of an animal companion in your child’s life cannot be overstated. Pets are not only lots of fun but they also boost development of your child physically, emotionally and cognitively.

Benefits of pets for kids

1. Caring for pets teaches responsibility to children- pets require to be fed, walked, taken to the veterinarian among many other needs. By having a living being that depends on them for sustenance, children learn the value of responsibility early in life. By providing for them, your child will develop valuable qualities such as compassion and kindness which they can also extend to their human companions. This forms the foundation for parental and leadership skills that they will require in later life.

2. Exercise- getting your child to play with their pet is a fun way to get your child the much needed physical activity. Dogs are particularly playful and mobile making them ideal playmates for you kid. Walking the family dog also provides an opportunity for physical exercise.

3. Children can learn valuable life lessons by having pets- very often losing pets is the first experience children have with bereavement which can help them to cope with death in future. They also teach kids the basics of life including reproduction, illness and accidents among others.

4. Pets are a source of fun- playing throw with a dog, cuddling a fuzzy cat or even watching a goldfish can be a great source of entertainment for your child. This is a much more healthier pass time than video games and social media.

5. They can act as social facilitators- a child is more likely to approach and interact with another child who is playing with a pet. A pet can therefore be a bridge between your kid and potential playmates especially if he or she is shy.

6. Pets boost children’s self esteem-various studies show that children who own pets are more emphatic, self confident and popular with their age mates. Pets are incapable of judging or anger and accept their owners unconditionally. This quality may help your child develop positive feelings towards themselves which is an essential pillar of self esteem.

7. They aid in cognitive and emotional development- your child’s pet can be instrumental in improving your child’s academic skills. You should encourage your child to read to their pet; studies show that this will not only increase their reading skills but will also increase their confidence to contribute in class.

8. Owning a pet can be therapeutic- pets act as a trusted companion to your child. Since they are non-judgmental and don’t disclose secrets, children feel safer talking to them about their problems than they would with another person. This way your child’s pet acts as a comforter, helping to relieve your child’s stress. This is especially needed in the estrus cycle, which  usually lasts for 30 days a year.

9. Having pets may reduce occurrence of allergies- it is a popular belief that pets cause asthma and allergies. However, research in recent years show that the converse might actually be true. Children who grow up with cats and dogs from an early age develop immunity to allergens since they are exposed early to certain bacteria.

How to Raise a Smart Child

how to raise a smart childAll parents want what’s best for their child, for them to grow up intelligent and successful. Parents play an important role in ensuring their child is given the tools to reach their full potential. Parents have many options on how to enrich a child’s life, maybe its Spanish language lessons at a young age, or enrolling them in a popular after-school tutoring center such as Kumon or Sylvan. Parents hope that all those weekend trips to the local art museum and piano lessons will enforce a good work ethic early on, and sure in some respects they’re right, but on another level are they pushing their kids too hard too soon? Here are some helpful tips and hints on nurturing knowledge and growth as your child grows and matures.

First, remember that a child is still a child, and they value time to watch mindless cartoons or play tag in the backyard. This is so important, as children need that carefree aspect, they don’t need to be constantly chauffeured from activity to activity meant to teach discipline and inadvertently put an unnecessary amount of pressure on a child so young, it will backfire in the future. So bottom line, let them have those moments of pure silliness, show them that life isn’t always going to be about work work work, and there is always time to enjoy simple things in life. This will nurture their self-esteem and teaches them the ability to balance work and play.

Second, it is important to start the love of learning early. I have worked as an assistant at a Kumon Learning Center and the children there are extremely well- behaved (most of them at least). I specialized in working with ‘early learners’ or children usually between the ages of 3-6. The secret is to not push too hard, but encourage a love for learning in a way they can understand. Teach them to count by asking them how many puppies there are on the worksheet, or award them with stickers when were able to read a short story all by themselves. Never say negative phrases, but always encourage them to try again and help them when they are truly lost. It is essential a parent is able to recognize that a child shouldn’t be pushed to learn and to be rewarded and complimented when they are able to do something constructive, self-esteem building at this age is imperative for a healthy child.

Third, don’t overwhelm them with activities, but don’t underwhelm them either. My advice to you, would be to find one activity, whether it be swimming or playing the violin , that your child enjoys and can work at a skill for when they are older. Don’t push an activity your child does not care for, that will not foster any type of growth. You want them to choose what they want to focus on, let them decide as it will convey to them that their opinion is not only welcomes, but valued. Specializing in an activity when they are lets say 5 or 6 will ensure that by the time they reach high school, they will have a skill (and love for that skill) that will make their extracurricular rich and, colleges later will appreciate that.
