Having pets in the home is a great way for children to learn about responsibility as well as helping them to develop a nurturing, kind nature towards animals, and indeed, people! However, although it may seem nice to have a cat sniffing round your ankles or a dog wagging his tail at you, the reality of keeping a pet can be very different.
Not all animals are suitable for pets - unless you live in a rambling country house or a farm! To start with, go for something easy to look after (as it may be you doing the messy work rather than your children!) Choose something small, easy to keep, easy to exercise, cheap to maintain, and that fits your home and surroundings.
