Wondering whether to give in to all those requests about getting a dog, cat, fish or a turtle?

Thinking whether getting a canine or a feline friend for your kid will only increase your work?

Here’s a list of your concerns about should you get your child a pet– answered:

  • There is an increased risk of infection: Studies have shown that children growing up with pets have a decreased risk of developing common allergies and asthma.
  • Things around the house will be damaged: A pet can be easily trained. Plus, your child will also learn the same things. In fact, training a pet will keep your child occupied.
  • A pet is a very big, additional responsibility: Use this opportunity to instil a sense of responsibility in child. Your child will learn what it is like to be in charge. Pets are good for social, physical, emotional and cognitive development of the child. This is especially important for families with single children – having a pet not only gives them company but also shows them what it is like to have a sibling. They learn to share and care.
  • Getting a pet will mean a lot of running around: Most kids nowadays spend a lot of time indoors in front of the TV or the iPad. Having a pet means their attention is focused in a positive way and they get physical exercise. Not only is this good for the bodies, it is also good for the mind.
  • A pet means increased stress levels: On the contrary, it has been clinically proven that playing with and cuddling a pet reduces stress levels. Owning a pet is also a great way for your kid to make friends.

Panel Discussion: Together, Apart – Uniting Efforts for Children in the New World Order

With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.

What can we, as influencers of change in the education space, do to create a better tomorrow for children? Join us for a panel discussion where we can come together to unite our efforts to secure the future of the nex-gen and create a better tomorrow for children.
