Should You Get Your Kids that Dog?

Holiday Dog in Costume

It’s that time of year again- the kids’ wish lists are being written and some of them might include a puppy or perhaps even a kitten (we love cats too at Barley Bones!). There’s been some scientific research this year on what children having pets does for them- especially for those who need emotional support and also helped with confidence levels in the children. 

Apartment Therapy has a great article with links to the study from Tufts University and other articles. Does this study convince you one way or the other?
