Responsibilities to Owning a Pet

Owning a pet may seem like a fun job, since you get to cuddle with your pet and play with it whenever you want to. However, the cons of owning a pet are never told because there is so much to it. Owning a pet comes with some fun moments, but there are also responsibilities that come with this joy.

If you are thinking about getting a pet yourself or for your child, then you should know the responsibilities that come with it so that you know what you are getting yourself into before you regret it in the future. Knowing the responsibilities that come with owning a pet can also help you see if your child is ready for a pet, since getting a pet for a child that might not be ready for one can be stressful for you since you must take over.

Below, we will talk about some responsibilities that come with owning a pet, so that you have some insight before you jump one and get one. Although it may sound like a lot of responsibility, the fun and joy of having a pet keeping your company is worth it in the end.

Responsibilities That Come with Your Pet

The first responsibility that comes with your pet is feeding. Feeding is important because it has to be done on a timely basis. This is hard for people who are new to owning a pet because they aren’t that used to feeding another individual food at a different interval than the usually three meals. Pets will require more meals than humans do because they eat less at one time and don’t use calories as efficiently as we do. By owning a pet, you must be responsible for how much you have to feed your pet as well as when which is fairly hard in the beginning, but as you get used to it, the easier it will be.

Another responsibility that comes with your pet is loneliness. As your pet will most likely have a lot of time spent on its own due to you being at work or no one being at home while everyone is outside, it is your responsibility to give your pet something to do while you are gone. An example of this is when you go to work, your pet will most likely be sad since you are gone and it has nothing to do. Something you can do to solve this is to provide your pet with a toy or something to play around with while you are gone, so that it doesn’t feel lonely while you are gone.

Lastly, the one responsibility everyone hates is cleaning up after your pet. Just like humans, pets will need to use the restroom, except it won’t be able to use the restroom like we do. This is why they will leave their waste on their floor and it will be your responsibility to clean it up. Although this isn’t a hard task, it isn’t something that you will like because it is both smelly and not something you would want to do, but you will have to do it as it is part of the responsibility that comes with owning a pet. If you can train your pet to use a litter pad, great, but if you can’t, you will have to clean up after your pet whenever it does do it.



There is a lot of responsibilities that come with owning a pet and if you think you can’t handle these responsibilities, then we recommend that you give a second thought as to if you can own a pet or not. However, if you think that you can handle it, then we recommend that you give it a go because the joy of owning a taking care of a pet is a very enjoyable task.…

What should we teach our children about employment?

Employment, career, work, are all that we look forward from our children when it comes to being a successful person! To us as parents, that is the reality and hence, yes it is important to teach our children about employment. When the word employment strikes in the first thing to teach are the importance of money. Not every kid would understand and judge all that money can do. Until a certain age, kids are prone only to play, eat and follow instructions. But when the need arises, we should teach them about money.

Money is a well-associated word with employment. The first thing we can tell our children about it is that employment is needed to earn money which is in turn needed to fulfill all our requirements in life. ‘Life’ of course is a big word for the young mind, but as parents, we can have it said in a simple manner by enacting a story. Employment should be taught as a part of life at every phase in the child’s growth. Here are a few things to consider while teaching about employment:

  1. Goal: what is that your child wants to do in future? Enacting roles may make your child want to become a doctor, a pilot etc. but it is important for the parent to understand what the child can do and help set a goal. But make sure, you don’t dump your feelings on the child. It should come out as a self-realization.
  2. Area of interest: At a certain age, say at 10 years old, every child will showcase some talent to which he/she is more inclined to. Employment can be decided based on the talent and hence, it is important to know the interest and help your child chose wisely. In the world of competition, it is important to choose at this age and go ahead in the right direction considering the various preparations to have a successful career ahead.
  3. Satisfaction: Lastly, make sure that in the course of preparing, your child is happy and satisfied with what is being done. The most important goal is only then achieved.
