I am writing an article for a national parenting website. Babies and toddlers are usually fascinated with the family pet...but what if they won't leave the pet alone and safety for either the pet or the child becomes an issue? I'd love quotes about your experience.

Please email me at keathlow@aol.com
Thanks!

1. If you have only one child, do not adopt a pet until the child is old enough to:
A. Understand that the pet is a living creature that can feel pain, and
B. Participate in the pet's care (do not ever turn over the ENTIRE responsibility for caring for a pet to ANY child, regardless of age)

2. If you have a pet for older children, and you also have a toddler, make sure the toddler is supervised around the pet; do not leave them alone together in the same room.

Hi. I just wanted to say thanks for responding. I have already submitted the article...but the points you listed were all included, as the experts I interviewed said the same thing you did!
