Get An Active Lively Pet If You Want To Encourage Physical Activity In Your Kid
Your child is ready to entertain more physical activities at this stage. Before buying a pet, it is very important your child understands raising a pet calls for responsibility.
If your child and the entire family agree, buy a pet that is active, like a Dog.
The natural playfulness and need for movements and exercise by the pet will force your child to get active too. Taking it for walks in the park, neighbourhood etc will encourage your child to be physically active. For instance, you can throw a ball and ask it to catch. Its better for your child to be outdoor, running and playing with the pet than watching TV or playing with gadgets.
Besides encouraging to be active, raising a pet teaches your child responsibility and empathy.
