HIGHLIGHTS:  According to a new study, kids generally like the family PET more than their siblings . . . especially if it's a dog.  The researchers found kids LOVE their siblings, but also feel like they're competitors . . . versus a dog, who just gives them unconditional love and companionship.

 

 

FULL STORY:  If you ask your kid which one of his brothers and sisters he likes the most, and he says, "the dog" . . . that doesn't mean you've failed as a parent.

 

 

According to a new study, kids generally like the family PET more than their siblings . . . especially if it's a dog.

 

 

The researchers found that kids LOVE their siblings, but still see them as COMPETITORS for everything from new toys to getting love from their parents.

 

 

They don't have those issues with a dog.  It gives them unconditional love and companionship . . . and they feel like they can safely share SECRETS with the dog, even though it doesn't understand.

 

 

The researchers also say that if you DON'T have a dog, you should probably think about getting one.  They found that having a dog cuts down how often your family gets into fights . . . and it can have a serious positive impact on your kids' development and happiness.
