Every child should have a pet, whether traditional such as a dog or nontraditional such as a snake. The type of pet does not matter, the lessons are the same. Pet ownership teaches responsibility, sacrifice, caring, empathy, and dealing with life and death. Pets need to eat, drink, sleep, have shelter and playtime without regard to superficial things such as video games, dates, or your social life. They require care when you don't feel well, and when it's cold outside. Pets teach valuable life skills that children will use throughout their lives.
Pets teach children more than schools do about love, life and death. And maybe if you're kids especially mean to or kills their pet, it teaches you about your kid.
