Enhancing physical health: Spending time with pets can improve physical health by increasing activity levels and reducing stress.
Boosting social skills: Pets can help children develop social skills by providing opportunities to interact with other pet owners and animals.
Promoting emotional well-being: Pets can provide comfort, support, and unconditional love to children, promoting their emotional well-being.
