Sounds like you have it all figured out. That being said, I agree with basically everything you wrote. There is one other aspect that you didn't mention & that's the joy/fun that's in it for whomever is lucky enough to get to take care of & own the snake(s). If it wasn't an overall fun experience, surely, most if not all people whom have them as pets wouldn't want to keep them! You seemed like you aimed what you wrote at all the work involved & it's true, there is lots of work in keeping any pet- especially snakes/reptiles as a whole. BUT, that is where some of the reward comes from. Because if your kid understands & gets in the habit of caring for them the "right way". He will get that much more joy out of the whole experience! I too have a step son, two actually & they're a bit younger than yours & they're not always here because we share them with there dad (these days anyway). I realize that if/when they're not here the responsibility will fall on me to care for their snakes if/when they get them. It's just a matter of time now before we get them something. The burden (if it can even be called that) falls on myself to teach them how to care for these awesome creatures. You undoubtedly sound as if you understand how to care for them. I hope everything works out for you & for the kid!
