A very good morning to you all, ladies and gentlemen. First of all, I wish to express my gratitude to the St. Monica High School Principal, Mrs. Smith for having me here to give a talk today. Now, if you realized, your children are tend to stop at the pet shop and seeing all the animals inside the cage. I am sure that the children would beg their parents to buy a pet for them. Some people love to keep pets at home but some people just don’t or can’t. But personal preferences aside, the scientific and medical literature seems to agree that there are strong benefits to keeping pets at home compared to those who have no pets at all. Well, in this talk, I will talk about some of the benefits of keeping pets at home have on your family and especially your children.
Firstly, having pets at home can surely relieve work and school stress. Research has shown that keeping a pet can greatly reduce the amount of stress experienced by the family owning the pet. Now, try imagining a cute little puppy is looking at you with its eyes or a soft cat rubbing against your feet. Could you really still feel so stressed out after that? Moreover, some research done has suggested that keeping pets can be so beneficial to your health that the reduction in blood pressure caused by having pets can even be greater than the effects of taking medication.
Now ladies and gentlemen,
Having a pet at home can develop your children to be caring, loving and more responsible. Children are likely to learn to care for others while taking care of a pet. Parents, as adults, can always involve your child in helping to feed a pet which should also teach them to take minor responsibilities on care for the well being of another creature. This develops strong and balanced character for your children. Children are particularly fond of pets and it isn’t hard to see why. Pets tend to love their owners without judging them, something a child will find easier to relate when compared with adults.
