How to teach children about pet care responsibilities

You will soon be adding a pet to your home and you want to show your little ones how to look after her. How can you begin to teach them about pet care responsibilities?

Your children are unique and you are likely well aware of what they can handle for care tasks. Think about their age and maturity level when teaching them about your new pet and make sure you are reasonable about the tasks you expect them to perform. Take the time to guide your child through a role plying session if you feel it would be helpful and make a point to share with your child the reason why certain tasks are necessary or performed the way they are. Be sure to offer your little fur ball appropriate supervision when interacting with your new pet to ensure everyone is having a positive experience. For additional information, please contact your local Michigan City, IN veterinarian.
