Why Do Kids Always Want a Puppy for Christmas?

If you have kids there is a very good chance you have seen one thing on their Christmas wish lists for years. A puppy! Unless you have a family pet of course. It just seems like kids can’t resist getting their hopes up and asking for a puppy every single year for Christmas. I can’t personally blame them because I did the same thing back when I was a kid. Come on, who can resist a puppy! Realistically though it can be difficult for parents to deal with this question every year, and find a way to explain that a puppy is just not a feasible idea for their family.

A post called, “He Wants a Puppy” talks about just this problem that parents are presented with. Sometimes it is the wrong time to get a pet, and a puppy is a lot of responsibility. Explaining it that way to young children might be tough, but having a puppy when their just isn’t somebody to take care of it is the wrong decision.
