The headline reads, “YOUR SIBLINGS LIKE YOUR PET MORE THAN THEY LIKE YOU” and they might be right!
According to a study from the University of Cambridge children get more satisfaction from the relationships they have with their pets more than with their brothers and sisters. The research also found that many children get along with their pets better than their siblings. While not the best news for moms and dads with multiple kids, the study does seem to speak to the importance an animal can play in childhood development, helping kids foster social skills and emotional maturity.
Agreed! How could you not want this?!?!
