Benefits of owning a pet for kids
We’ve had a love for pets ever since early man first trained wolves to obey commands. You won’t find many wolves in family homes today, but dogs, cats, birds, hamsters and rabbits are commonplace.
Unsurprisingly, young children are particularly fond of having their own pet.
This guide will look at the impact pets have on children, what it takes to own a pet, and will demonstrate how a pet is a healthy addition to any child’s upbringing.

Counselling Directory was set up as a free, confidential service to encourage those in distress to seek help. Visitors can read about different areas of distress, view useful articles written by counsellors and refine their search to find the most appropriate help. Every counsellor on the site has either sent a copy of their qualifications and insurance cover to us, or is registered with a professional body online with recognised codes of ethics and practice, this way we can be assured of their professionalism. We are now a leading support network in the UK. This site could be a useful resource for those people in our area looking for support or general advice about counselling.

Frauds aimed at seniors
This is an American web site but a fraud is a fraud no matter where it takes place and what happens in the US also happens in the UK. Either we import it from there, or they from us. It doesn't matter which it is but for the crooks and scammers this is big business. It is important to be aware of the many scams and frauds happening. We have been told "Don't keeping telling us this, we all know!" - but the problem is people are still getting caught and losing their savings. Only a couple of months ago an older neighbour, stressed because he husband had just gone into a dementia home, fell foul of a fraudster who came to "collect her bank card and PIN" on behalf of her bank and lost a large sum of money.
Read through the scams and frauds and don't get caught. Remember if it looks too good to be true - IT IS!!
