A lively gift for a child, pets

Children are asking for a dog. What to do? How to explain to them that the dog is another child in the family, and I am not ready for it.

As soon as the children start talking about the dog, I immediately recall about the Kid and Carlson. How did this boy dream of a dog, and how I felt sorry for him when I read this book in my childhood and watched a cartoon. I did not understand those unfeeling parents who did not want to give their son a dog for his birthday.

And now I am in the same situation. The kids ask me to buy a dog, and I think of some stupid reasons sucked from the finger. But maybe this is not so?

My failure motivation


Now is not the time. I have a lot of worries. The children went to school, work, cuisine, English, dancing, swimming, boxing, football. And you need to look good, have a good mood and find the whole sneaker under the bed.

Maybe I look selfish, but I can’t take another dog walking in the mornings, a vet and wool on my jeans. And as soon as the children do not prove to me that they will take care of the dog, I somehow do not believe them.

Hygiene. Knowing how children play with dogs, I won’t be able to see that they have clean hands. And since there is still little responsibility in them, I don’t want to display parasites in children every week. In addition to worms, dog’s fur harbors depriving pores, mites and other pathogens of skin diseases. Even if the dog is regularly washed and bathed, it will still not be perfectly clean.

Therefore, my heart is torn between the desire of children and my arguments. While the latter are winning, I don’t know how it will end.

And recently, my brother was given a parrot. He has a one-year-old daughter growing up, and such a gift caused her indescribable delight. She runs around the cage, trying to speak like a bird, laughing at how the bird is scratching its wings. Such a lively gift turned out to be successful, I will tell you. The bird does not take up much space, is very cute and does not create problems that would prevent it from growing with the child.

I decided to offer the children a parrot as an alternative to the dog. But, unfortunately, my trick did not work. They flatly refused such a replacement. Yes, I understand them. I once asked my parents about a dog myself, but they were adamant. And now I also look like a tough mom in the eyes of my children, who does not want to listen to the desires of her children.

How to explain to them that I don’t want to hurt them, I just don’t have enough strength or time for a dog.

What to do in this case? Maybe you tell me? How to deal with children’s desires?

It seems to me that this is not just my problem, is it?
