Pet Care Tip – Kids with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

Many fish owners find that maintaining a fish aquarium can be a relaxing and rewarding experience.  But did you know that fish aquariums can also have a positive effect on kids?  It has been shown that some kids with problems such as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), Epilepsy, and Hyperactivity, can benefit from being around an aquarium full of fish.

Watching the fish can have a calming effect on these kids. As they watch the fish, they will get interested in them and can learn about both fish and nature. Also, listening to the hum of the filter or the water moving across the top of the water can be soothing.  Taking care of an aquarium is also a good way to teach responsibility for kids.

So get your kids involved with the care and enjoyment of your fish aquarium, and let them enjoy the benefits of have an aquarium in your home!
