View Full Version : Media Request - Childminders with pets

16-10-2011, 10:42 AM
I'm writing a piece for Child Care magazine and looking for a childminder who has pets. I would need to do a brief telephone interview with you to ask about your experiences - why pets are important for you and your children, what are the disadvantages perhaps?..... I would then include a short profile about you at the end of my piece, including a weblink if you have one.

If you are interested please contact me here, or at dfpapc@aol.com.

Many thanks.

I'll help you out, I have 5 chickens, 2 cats, 2 gerbils, 1 fish and a husband!!!!!

I feel having pets is very important to a child's development.
