How do you expect a 14 year old to contribute money anyways?
And at 14 i would think the charade sounded like a sick bribe to live there.

Her rotating interests in pets is probably because she gives up hope on one, and moves on to another.

I agree if she cannot care for it she shouldn't have it, so make a deal with her to care for it. If she doesn't make the time to see it, then give it up.

If she cannot make the time to see it (because of her real mom, and issues stemming from school and other responsabilities) then take a little pitty. Remember what it was like to be 14 and dependant on other people ? If she can't come over all the time is it her fault or does she have other responsabilities.

A snake was a really good suggestion on your part too btw

if you are the only person whom would possibly allow her to have an animal (ie her mom won't), then she has no choice then to beg you


I do think holding off is a good choice on your part though, because she doesn't seem sure as to what animal she'd really be into having yet.. but its hard to find out unless tried ??

Maybe have her do a Trial Animal, and if she can care for that to your satisfaction, then she can have the real thing. For instance make her care for the dog, or snake, or Anoles..

Just some suggestions, no offence
