Stuck On Homework? Go The Rat Route!
Before you call an exterminator or put down traps, consider this: rats are good for something! If you've been considering getting a pet this summer, you may want to look in to the often pesky little rodent. Why? A new study shows a link between having one and a significant increase in performance on school assignments for kids! So, how significant is "significant?" Owners of pet rats saw a 92% rate of improvement!
If you want to spike your kids creativity and just can't tolerate going the rat route, consider a soft little chinchilla. Still not feeling it? You can opt for the traditional dog or cat, which showed an 83% improvement. I guess it's really up to you how well you want your child do in school... ;)
