What can children learn from looking after their own pets?
The most important thing they learn is to be responsible. You have to guide them first, set times in which the pet must be fed, the water changed, when they need to play, etc. Then they will learn to do it all by themselves and learn to raise their pet as a responsible "parent". It will also let them be more independent and sociable.
Responsibility and compassion for starters - also safety around animals and selflessness, communication and empathy.
they become disiplined and responsbile because their pets relys on them to feed, clean them and care for them.
They learn responsibility, patience, compassion and loyalty for a start. They also learn friendship and understanding. The importance of another life and communication with that other life.
It teaches them self-discipline, and that they alone are responsible for their own actions.
Empathy. As a parent just be ready to take over the actual responsibility. A pet is not a toy that can be neglected.
I believe that from an early age children can benefit a great deal from having a pet. If you want to know exactly what children can learn from looking after a pet you need to read this article. read more
