Sooner or later, every parent is likely to hear: “Mom, may I have that Porcelaine puppy?”
Rather than avoid the question, parents should think about whether or not the family is ready for a new puppy, and even moreso a Porcelaine, says Sharon Bergen, senior vice president of education and training for Knowledge Learning Corporation, the country’s leading provider of early childhood care and education.
While thinking about “should we get the Porcelaine” Bergen recommends parents ascertain the pros and cons of bringing the Porcelaine to the family prior to giving in to a kid’s wish. “The Porcelaine can teach your kids about responsibility and become a great addition to your household-or it can become a chore,” she has said. Bergen recommends you ponder the following before committing:
Questions to Ponder Before Answering Should You Get The Porcelaine Puppy
Who will care for the Porcelaine? Parents and children must come to an agreement beforehand who will be the one in charge of bathing, walking, feeding and cleaning up behind the Porcelaine.
Do you have an area for the Porcelaine, or does your landlord allow dogs? Folks living in townhouses or apartments may be better suited to a cat, a bird or fish, instead of the Porcelaine. Check with the library or Internet to discover more about Porcelaines to decide if another animal may be more suitable for the household.
Being the owner of the Porcelaine is time consuming and may be expensive. Your family should realize that they will be expected to forsake current activities to properly care for the Porcelaine. If that prospect turns out to be too daunting, you might consider delaying until the child is old enough to help care for the Porcelaine.
Conclusion: Should You Get A Porcelaine
Bergen suggests the whole family meet the Porcelaine prior to committing to take it home. Rearing the Porcelaine is a long-term commitment, so think carefully before adopting one.
