It seems that kids prefer their pets over their siblings
When we adopt a pet, it becomes part of the family. Each member develops a unique bond with the animal according to their personality. Still, a recent study has shown that children are likely to look for their dog or cat when they need emotional support.
Apart from being the best playmates, pets are also incredible confidants. They won’t judge anyone for what they say or reveal; secrets are kept silent. As such, it makes sense that kids prefer animals over their brothers and sisters when it comes to seeking emotional support.
