It's National Homeownership Month ~ Reason #5 To Own Your Own Home

By

It's National Homeownership Month in June and here's Reason #5 why you should own your own home:

 

 

THE LANDLORD DOESN'T DECIDE IF YOUR CHILD SHOULD HAVE A BEST FRIEND

 

Reason #5 To Own Your Own Home 

 

Can you imagine what it's like to grow up without a family pet, be it a dog or cat, who is your best friend? I can't. There have been very few times in my life when I didn't have a cat and/or dog enriching my life. Pets help children in many ways, including:

 

  • Learning manners and responsibility for someone other than yourself.

  • Learning--children with pets are more relaxed and thus learn more easily.

  • Socialization--pets give children something to talk about with others and a shared interest with other children.

  • Nurturing--pets encourage children to be more nurturing, which extends to siblings and their own parenting skills when they grow up. Boys particularly benefit from learning nurturing skills with a pet, as they don't see it as a girly activity, such as playing with dolls, which is how little girls often learn nurturing skills.

  • Staying healthy--there is a school of thought that because pets can improve a child's immune system, children with pets are healthier.

  • Building family bonds--family activities centered around the family pet certainly strengthen the overall family bond.

Many rental properties do not allow pets of any kind. Wouldn't it be wonderful to know that you own your own home and can give your child their childhood best friend without asking a landlord for permission?

Hi Joe Petrowsky ~ being an animal lover, this one is near and dear to my heart. I remember renting an apartment in DC in college, which wouldn't let me keep my cat. It was hearbreaking. Have a great weekend yourself!

Yep! Great example and reason...the home owner IS the landlord and enjoys the Bundle of Rights associated with home ownership.

Nick T Pappas ~ so many things you can;t often do when it's not your property--from keeping a pet, to painting, to hanging pictures, etc. It's never really "your" home under those circumstances.

Nina- this is excellent, and "the landlord shouldn't decide if your child should have a best friend" is perfect.  It's another great reason to buy a home.

Nina - that is a good reason.  I grew up with my dog as my buddy.  Likewise my daughters had their dog.  I didn't have to worry because it was my house.

Nina, this is a huge reason to have a home of your own. We always had pets when I was growing up. In our own home...

Good morning, Grant Schneider ~ it seems as if increasingly it's harder and harder to find a rental that allows pets, especially dogs. And I just can't imagine growing up without a pet.

Evelyn Johnston ~ sometimes I think in our neighborhood we have more dogs than people (and that's not counting the indoor cats). So that goes to show how important these creatures are to our well-being as humans. We have one of each and I just can't imagine living in a situation where I couldn't have pets, especially if there were children in the household.
