Resolution 6: Having a pet is good for kids and families

PROPOSITION (FOR)

OPPOSITION (AGAINST)

  1. Introduction

There are many benefits to owning a pet. Pets teach children valuable life lessons like responsibility, trust, compassion, respect and patience. While pets offer a lot of benefits to kids, kids also have a lot to offer the pet in your family as well. Today we will debate having a pet is good for kids and families or not. I belive that each family should have a pet. We will make our position with the following arguments to support our position.



  1. Present the 1st argument

Our first argument to affirm the resolution is that owning a pet requires a sense of responsibility. That is true because pets require food, water and love. Many, some more than others, require exercise. They also require grooming (brushing develops large muscles of the arm) and bathroom time (walking the dog develops large muscles of your child’s legs and is good for the development of their heart, brain and lungs). If your child requests a pet, talk to them about the responsibilities and permanence of owning a pet.







  1. Introduction

Nowadays, society has increasingly developed, and people spend a lot of time at work and have a lot of things to take care of for their families. Meanwhile, keeping a pet is a very troublesome, expensive, time-consuming, and especially allergenic thing for some people. Therefore, pets are not good for young children and families.



  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team said that owning a pet requires a sense of responsibility. That may be true, but I think Children are only interested in taking care of pets a few times. Because nowadays there are many things that children are more interested in, such as their favorite TV shows or toys that don't need to be cared for. If they don't take care of them anymore, their parents will take care of them, so they not only don't learn responsibility but also have a tendency to depend on their parents. In short, the process of taking care of a pet is complicated and a child will not be able to complete it patiently

  1. Present the first argument

Our first argument to oppose this resolution is that pet fur is not good for the health of children. That is the case because pets, in general, all have a feature that they have a lot of fur or species without fur or feathers, they cannot clean their bodies every day like humans. It is a good environment for bacteria or parasites like fleas, lice, and dog ticks. That's why pets always contain dangerous pathogens that can cause diseases in humans, especially in children with immature infectious systems.



  1. Refute the opponent’s 1st argument

Your team said that pet fur is not good for the health of children. That is an interesting idea, but I disagree, we can clean and disinfect our pets with shower gels and disinfectants for pets. According to the research found in the Time article, "Why Dogs and Cats Make Babies Healthier," exposure to pet dander could prime babies’ still-developing immune systems to be able to fend off common allergens and bugs. Therefore, pet hair is not a problem affecting children's health.



  1. Present the 2nd argument

Our second argument to affirm the resolution is that research shows children who live in homes with a dog can possibly have fewer ear infections and respiratory tract infections and require fewer antibiotics, perhaps because the exposure to animals at a young age stimulates the immune system. That is true because research found in the Time article, “Why Dogs and Cats Make Babies Healthier,” indicates that exposure to pet dander could prime babies’ still-developing immune systems and be able to fend off common allergens and bugs. Young children’s immune systems are more capable of facing them. Kids with a dog did better than those with a cat. The exposure has to happen very early in life. This is important because more information can also be found in the CBS News article, “Babies with dogs less likely to develop colds, ear infections as infants.”









  1. Refute the opponent’s 2nd argument

Your team said that children who live in homes with a dog can possibly have fewer ear infections and respiratory tract infections and require fewer antibiotics, perhaps because the exposure to animals at a young age stimulates the immune system. I disagree because people who are allergic to cat and dog hair will suffer their health. Because if someone in the family has allergies, they will be extremely uncomfortable when exposed to them. Therefore, keeping a pet also boosts immunity and is less likely to catch colds is not true.

  1. Present the 2nd argument

The next argument to oppose this resolution is that there are many dangers that pets bring around us, especially children. This may be true because they can attack us in different ways such as scratching, biting, or attacking consecutively. Not only pets that weigh up to tens of kilograms and are aggressive such as mastiffs, Pit-bulls, Dobermans, Rottweilers, etc. are dangerous, but scratches and bites from small animals like cats, hamsters ... are equally dangerous, can get infected or develop rabies. Therefore, keeping an animal as a friend is not at all beneficial to humans, if you intend to keep a pet, stop thinking about it for your and your family's safety.



  1. Refute the opponent’s view point

Your group of friends said that keeping pets is dangerous and not beneficial for humans. But I do not agree that when society is more and more modern, people are more and more advanced, taming an animal is completely simple. Animals also have intelligence, they can do a good job as a friend to us, they understand who treats them well, they will love us back, just use love to treat them nothing is impossible. Not to mention, when society develops under a lot of pressure, the need to relax by being friends with pets increases and a lot of training and veterinary services were born to help with that. Pet diseases can be completely prevented before reaching the owner, so the owner does not need to worry about them. Therefore, it is unlikely that pets can pose a danger to humans.

  1. Present the 3rd argument

Our third argument to affirm the resolution is that pets can help children with their learning. This is true because educators have long used animals (mainly dogs) as a form of therapy in schools, using them to help developmentally challenged kids to learn. In particular, animals can help children’s reading skills. This is important because research has shown that students who may be reluctant to read out loud at school feel more confident reading to animals as they see them as a non-judgemental pal.









  1. Refute the opponent’s 3rd argument

Your team said that pets can help children with their learning. That may be true, but I think talking with pets makes children learn more. Since humans can talk and pets can't, they can only express their emotions and actions. So, a child who just plays with a pet all day can help improve their communication skills.



  1. Present the 3rd argument

Our next argument to oppose this resolution is that keeping a pet takes up a lot of living space and doesn't leave much room for the pet to move around freely. This is true because pets are wild in nature, they are better off living freely in a large natural environment, some pets can be kept in cages but some can't. Dogs are often very active or run around, some cats are at risk of depression if they are often alone in a narrow space without contact with other people. The space in your home may be disturbed and some objects will not be intact because of the presence of pets. This has a significant impact on the health of pets and has a direct impact on our living space.



  1. Refute the opponent’s 3rd view point.

Your team said that having pets would take up a lot of our living space. This may be true, but I think that with today's development, it is possible to give pets a living space right in their home, a separate area for them to live. That will be the place where they sleep and rest like a cage. As long as you know how to train your pet to adapt to the cage-like its own home. Pets need a minimum number of items and accessories for them to live. It's food, food trays, sleeping mats, toilet sand... Besides, pets love toys. That way, staying at home a lot will become less boring for them.

  1. Make conclusion

In conclusion, most importantly having a pet is fun. Whether it is a dog, cat, bird or ferret, owning an animal brings enjoyment to any household.





  1. Make conclusion

In summary, keeping a pet is very complicated and also brings some negative effects, such as infection, injury from bites, etc. Therefore, we should not keep pets to ensure optimal health for our family.
