Of course, you can! In fact, pet ownership has a positive impact on your child. We’ve noticed that kids that have been raised with pets learn to be compassionate and empathetic and they grow up to be responsible individuals. Respect is a two-way street – when kids show respect towards their pets, the pets too will trust the kids and be calm around them. So, there’s no need to fear when you have kids and pets living under one roof. All you have to do is educate your kids on how to care and interact with pets and you will have a harmonious setup at home.
