If you have little children and they continuously ask for a pet is always hard to say no. But taking care of a cat or a dog requires a lot of time and energy. And if the kids are too little they may not know when is the right time to feed the pet – when to play with the cat and when to let it sleep or when is the right time to walk the dog. So, the first step to teach your children responsibility is to have a bird, rather than a cat or a dog. A bird also requires a lot of attention, but for smaller kids is easier and more fun and the chances of getting hurt while playing with one are tiny.
If you buy a bird, you need a bird aviary. It is very important to find the best bird aviary for the bird you have, because it should offer it enough space to move freely. A bird aviary that is designed for home use is not very expensive. And bird food neither. That is why it is great to have a bird – so you can teach your children responsibility and how to take care of such a pet. They should have access to the bird aviary in order to feed the bird and they should also learn how to clean the bird aviary. Although it does not take a lot of time, do not do it yourself, let them do it. This way, your kids will know that this tiny pet is their responsibility. And they also will learn how to interact with such pets.
Many birds sing when you talk to them and some parrots can even learn to talk. So, your kids will have an important reason to take care of the bird. They will have a play companion they can teach. In order to train it, you could set the bird free from the bird aviary every time it sings. Getting out of the bird aviary to fly in the house will be like its payment. So use the bird aviary it has in order to train and play with the bird and teach your children responsibility and how to care of a small pet.
