Older Kids & Pets
Terms & Conditions
When you really think about it, growing up with a pet or around any animal does change your life. We don't see it as much when we are younger but everything we learn then impacts on us as we mature. Our first loss is the most painful, I remember being devastated. I recall asking a lot of questions and in the end although I didn't quite understand it then, I was introduced to the 'circle of life'.
Children thrive having pets around, whether it be a hamster, a cat, dog or a goldfish.
Kids and pets have a special bond and they help each other grow. Encouraging your children to write about or research their pets gives them a deeper understanding of the breed, their special needs and their characteristics.
Interaction is important for a child's cognitive development and it sparks the desire for learning.
Please join us by encouraging your child to write about their pet and let them know that by writing they are helping to rescue and re-home animals in need.
The other bonus of course is that they will be published & famous!
