    Pet animals have been integral part of human civilizations from time immemorial. Having them at home can be a great value especially for kids as it encourages virtues of compassion and care. Meanwhile, some individuals are of the opinion that they pose health risks and can be hazardous. In this essay I will discuss both the sides and give my opinion.

    On one hand, taking care of pet animals inculcates the values of care, compassion in children, furthermore helping them to empathize with their needs without communication through language. This can help in development of emotional quotient of the young ones. To illustrate, it has been noted in a comparative scientific study that kids growing up a pet or pets are better emotionally equipped to deal with situations as adults , than those who did not possess them at during their younger days. Some domestic animals like dogs can also act as guards alerting the owner to any intruders.

    On the other hand, they can also bring along some risks like physical danger to small infants in the form of bites or even threat to life if not well supervised by a responsible adult. Animals can be carriers of various diseases and infections, which can spread to humans if the animals are not vaccinated and timely taken medical attention is not sought. For example, there are many cases of animal scabies which are contracted from dogs and cats, which can cause enormous suffering for the family.

    Though there are many risks associated with domesticating animals at homes, I personally agree to the opinion that having them is more advantageous to the overall upbringing of the young people and cultivates good habits and virtues.

      Many believe that keeping pet animals at home is beneficial for kids but there are certain people who don’t believe this considering it threatening and unhygienic for growing children. I agree with having pets, it has more pros than cons for kids, depending on the type of the pet and how the owner keeps them. This essay will cover on how keeping pets is good for children, also why it can be dangerous and unhealthy.

      In general, it is believed that keeping pets has many psychological benefits besides physical. For kids in particular, keeping pets in fact improves their immunity. In case of pets like dogs, kids are safe if the dog protects them. A trained dog knows who and what could be dangerous for kids. It can save them from kidnapers, someone who strikes on them, from other harmful animals too. Pets can make sure of the safety with the help of the sixed sense they have. For example, there was an incident where a kidnaper entered an unlocked house from the backyard, reached the kid playing in the hall, while the mother was in the bathroom oblivion of what was going on. Their dog, a German Shepard, managed to bite the kidnaper’s legs, make him incapacitated and save the kid.

      On the contrary, pet animals can also be vicious given the circumstances of extreme hunger, hot weather, diseased, threatened etc. They can be unhealthy too, if not properly groomed and maintained for a long time. Although all these situations can be averted by the owner itself and in order to do that taking proper care of the pet, feed them properly, in addition to keeping them vaccinated and taking certain other measures is proven to be effective. For example a pet that is never loved becomes aggressive gradually. A hungry cat may attack on people around it, a rabbit can bite on if felt threatened, even a baby horse’s kick can hit the kids really hard which sums up to be dangerous for kids.

      SO the conclusion comes out to be in agreement with keeping pets is beneficial for children, meanwhile what needs to be taken care of is what kind pets is around the kids and how the pet itself feels around the kids and the owner. It is recommended to adopt or buy a pet according to the needs and the ability to grow them as parents.

    Nowadays Pets are becoming an important member in families. Peoples opinion differ as to whether or not it is good for children to keep pets. Some suggest that raising pets can make a bond with them whereas others think it is dangerous and unhealthy to keep them.

    To begin with, Pets are very trustable and lovable. They are very protective of their owner and easily develop strong bonds of love and care for people around them. In the case of a child, a pet always looks out for them. Additionally, they adds to the overall development of children since children loves to take care of their pets by feeding and grooming them which makes children more responsible and caring. Moreover, being exposed to dogs or cats from a very young age strengthen the immune system. An Indian study, for example states that spending time with pets makes children less aggressive in nature and make them healthy overall.

    But on the other hand, pets can be dangerous to the children below 4 years as they are too young to handle them and may require elders supervision. Some people likes to keep unusual pets like snakes and lizards which may pose a serious threat to children however there are very few such cases. Additionally pets maintenance can be a tedious task for some people and negligence in vaccination may lead to serious health issues for example dog bites. Also animal rights activists does not recommend keeping pets at home in order to protect their right to live in natural habitat of their own.

    To conclude, despite several drawbacks of keeping a pet and they are beneficial in stress reduction and overall health and also protects us from any threats. Hence, I believe the advantages outweighs the disadvantages

    It is often argued that the presence of pets in houses with children below the age of 15 is treacherous due to numerous reasons which include security, hygiene, and safety of kids hence completely agree with the statement that keeping animals with kids might not be the wise decision and this essay will discuss on the same viewpoint about how animal presence in the house can create muddles for parents.

    first of all, having pets is considered a wise decision because they bring security and liveliness to the house, on the other hand, they also need an equal amount of care and training which takes a certain amount of effort and for a house with teenagers or below of that age might result in chaos as parenting might take a toll on it.

    for example, it was found in a study that children below the age of 15 are more susceptible to many diseases because of a vulnerable immune system however, it is also a known fact that many animals contain hazardous germs and bacterias so it becomes a risky amalgamation on health point of view.

    secondly, keeping a pet requires the same or more amount of effort when compared to parenting for kids as the pets also need training and care.

    In this modern society with working parents leaving kids with pets will be dangerous no matter how much we isolate them.

    for example, recently it was all over the news how a dog broke the leg of a toddler though it was intentional or not that was a separate debate however it was always expected as the child does not know the risk attached to playing with pets.

    in conclusion, keeping pets is not harmful considering it is not an arena with kids and as we discussed the efforts gets divided for a parent when both of them comes under the same roof hence it does not just open up the door for many infectious diseases but also increases probability many risky injuries.

    Pet parenting is common these days. We can able to see a pet like a cat or a dog in most of the houses. While some individuals believe that pets have a positive impact on their adolescents. Others argue that is unhealthy and spread diseases. This essay will look into both points of view with some instances and agree with the point of having a pet is beneficial for younger ones.

    To begin with, the primary reason for individuals to consider animals as a threat to there is their aggressive behavior towards children. While having a pet for the first time children below 5 years may not know how to deal with the animal, They may chew the ears and beat them as a result animal may become wild. However, leaving children with pets without parent supervision is always dangerous. To avoid these kinds of situations parents should be attentive and guide their adolescents in the beginning and should be careful in terms of medications and food so that can avoid diseases.

    On the other hand, Pets are friendly, innocent, loyal moreover we can have faith in them. We can find all these similar qualities in the children as well so that they both connect to each other within no time. Growing with pets will boost the immune system of children they can be kind from the beginning and friendly towards people as well. For instance, reported that children below one year who grew up with dogs and cats have a healthy immune system and had no allergy issues or asthma, even though their family has the history of allergies and asthma.

    In conclusion, owning a pet has a few negative impacts on children. However, those are avoidable by taking small measures. I think there are huge benefits to growing children with pets. Definitely gives a good positive vibe to the entire family.

    In recent times, pet ownership has become common, many children fond of spending time with their pet dogs and cats. Pet related injuries have heated debates whether it is healthy or not, as it may spread dangerous virus. In this essay I will explain both points with ideas that having a pet is beneficial or not.

    On one hand, having a domestic pet like dog, cat, rabbit, fish, cow and horse is beneficial for children, they usually care for their furry friends in many ways like grooming, feeding, therapies in case of illness even taking them to a walk. With all these young children learn about responsibilities for other animals and people as well by the time children become impartial and overwhelmed. It is found that those children are spending time with pet are delighted and magnanimous. Few studies show infect children living with pets have more immunity as compared to others.

    On the other hand, some children have toxic pets as – snake, spider and monkey, which itself is dangerous for them, they can hurt, sometimes they can kill them, in some cases little children can bit their pet, by this pet can hurt them. This causes a pet to become angry and attack young ones. Additionally, household pets may spread diseases like allergies and food poisoning because they carry dirt which contains various bacteria, pathogens and virus. However, a little bit of parental supervision is more than enough to take care of these problems. But it’s probability is very less so that it can be ignored, if domestic pets are not vaccinated from the virus which is in their mouth, the virus is mixture of cancer, other viruses and etc.

    In conclusion, pets have more positive and less negative impact on children, they become mentally and physically strong, I am assuming if some law for toxic pets imposed by government can help.

    While many people agree with the fact that pets are beneficial for kids, others believe that they are harmful and consider it unsafe to keep children with them unsupervised. In my opinion, I think that having pets is dangerous and unhealthy especially for the young ones and should not leave them alone with them. In the following paragraphs, I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having a pet for children.

    To begin with the disadvantages, the four-legged friends’ behavior is unpredictable which can cause lots of issues especially with toddlers who are just starting to learn about their surrounding life. For example, they might pull the tale of their animal to explore their reaction that could be deleterious as they might bite them or scratch their skin badly. Moreover, domestic animals tend to spend most of their time in the outdoors especially the streets. Therefore, they catch some dirt and germs in their legs and four that can be transmitted to their youth owners and result in severe illnesses that they can’t tolerate.

    On the other hand, there are several advantages of having domestic animals to play with kids. The first advantage includes teaching them to take responsibility by taking care of their pet which teaches them not to be selfish and think about others. For example, providing food and water for the tame animal by young individuals teaches them to respect other lives. Another advantage is that it gives the children the opportunity to explore the animal’s world around them and provide them with a valuable source of information that grows up with them during their learning phase of life.

    In conclusion, having pets with young individuals has positive effects on them, however, it can have negative effects if adults’ supervision is not provided.

    Some People argues that having a pet at home can be beneficial for children while other think that pets can be hazardous and tend to be risky for heath. In my view, keeping pets at home may cause health problem and could be life threating too. This essay will examine both the sides and give appropriate conclusion.

    There are people who believes that pets are kind and have more affection even more than human, they shares their feeling and emotions with us as they grown with kids, they gets same treatments, love and care from the other family members as result children could also learn how to care about others and especially how to behave with them. Moreover, pets can be a great companion to those children who doesn’t have sibling or friends. A study said that children who stay with pets are more courteous and kind hearted.

    Whereas, other think that pets are threating to keep with them which can cause heath difficulties especially to the children and aged family members, obviously when keeping pets must require proper hygiene, cleaning and good care of their health too. They needs to be strolled even require more precautions when family travels to distant place in short it requires good amount of time for care. In addition, they prone higher health risk for instance viral infection related to pet could transmit to children.

    In conclusion, I would brief that love and affection with pets are always good as that impact children behavior however, potential risk seems more to keeping them inside home with children that could be dangerous if they left unattended.
