7 SURPRISING BENEFITS OF PET OWNERSHIP FOR KIDS

Season #1 Episode #78

In this episode of The 3D Parent Podcast, I’m sharing the surprising benefits of pet ownership for children. Taking care of animals can help children develop responsibility, empathy, and motivation. It can be wonderful for both their physical and emotional health. 

 

Points we discuss include:

  • How pet ownership helps children develop into maturity
  • The ways animals can help regulate emotions
  • Points to consider before bringing animals into your family

 

While pet ownership is a big responsibility, it can bring so much joy into the lives of children. Should you decide to dive into pet ownership, you might discover and experience all the hidden benefits a pet can provide for your child and find a new way to connect as a family through your pet(s).
