The Emotional Benefits Of Having Family Photos Displayed In Your Home:

There are many surprising ways in which family photos hold importance. Not only to capture and save priceless memories but also to help develop your children’s sense of self and strengthen your family bond. 

Moments Worth Treasuring Endlessly

A photograph speaks a thousand words. From first birthdays to academic accomplishments, and so much more– photographs are how we capture these moments in time and all of the emotions they bring. There are few things that mean more than the ability to look back on memories that helped enormously in shaping your family, for years to come. We may not have time machines, but photography gives us a tool pretty darn close. Life can get a little hairy, pun intended if you have pets, and looking back on these happy moments means a great deal when you are in the midst of its craziness. 

Encourage Better Child Development

Family portraits showcase everyone within it as a whole, a united front without a divide. Looking back upon these moments helps your child see themselves like a puzzle piece within your family, completing those around them and how perfectly they fit in their own unique way. A child’s sense of self is a delicate part of their development, and solidifying their place within your family goes a long way in helping them view themselves positively in the future. Children who grow up in homes full of family portraits, on average, feel more connected to those around them. 

Family Bond

There are so many moments we replay in our minds endlessly and wish we could live in forever. Be it large milestones or simply capturing the smaller things such as your family together, your pets, etc. gives you and your loved ones undoubtedly joyful memories to look back on in the future.  Nothing means more than the ability to reflect on these times for years to comesaving precious moments long passed in a way you can not only feel in your heart but also see and touch. Your family will always have one another and the wackiest,  most memorable, and sweetest moments you all shared.

How To Ease A New Pet Into Your Home:

   Adding a new pet into the mix is undeniably exciting and fun. However, like any transition, it can be a learning process at the same time. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when integrating a new furry family member into your home. 

By Abigail Brown

Be patient and calm

  A new pet is bound to be at least a little nervous when brought into a new environment, more so when there are other pets in the home that they are meeting for the first time. Take it slow and don’t rush them to interact with one another. A great way to help ease this is to have a separate location for your new pet to stay, so they can have some alone time to get used to the house– and slowly interact over time. 

Build a routine

  If your new pet will be the only animal in your home, get a routine set up for their feeding, walking, playtime, etc. to help them get familiar and feel comfortable within your home. If there are other animals in the home and your new friend is separated from them initially, utilize the same schedule for them that you normally use with your other pets. This will ease their transition into sharing feeding time, walks, and attention with another animal.

Example:

-Feed at 8 am

-Walk

-Playtime at 12 pm

-Treats 

-Walk 2 pm

-Dinner 3 pm

-Walk before bedtime

Celebrate the good behavior of any pets within the home

A good way to help your new friend adjust to your household rules is to reward both them and any other pets in the home for things they do well–or for listening particularly well. Even small moments such as coming when told being positively enforced can help greatly. This is especially helpful if you already have an animal integrated within your home who follows directions, as it will encourage your new pet to follow their example. Rewarding all animals in the home whenever possible, rather than only your new animal, helps keep their forming bond in the best shape possible while not causing competition to arise. 

Quality time 

  Get to know your new pet, try your best to bring a new animal friend into your home when your schedule will allow you the time to get to know them. Spend as much time with your new fur baby as possible, and their adjustment into your home will go a lot smoother. This quality time will also help build the bond between pet and pet parent.
