Adding a Pet to the Family

Thinking about getting a pet? Experts suggest children should be about six years old before you introduce a pet into the family. Fish and gerbils are great for young kids. For bigger commitments, consider your lifestyle. Are you home enough to care for a dog? Find a pet that matches your lifestyle and include your child in pet responsibilities.
