They are a world of work and like the others said can be very demanding. If you want an exotic pet get a lizard. I lost all my birds $5k worth to a girlfriend we purchased them together and when we were coming to an end she flipped out and killed them all off.
Stick to a cat, dog, gerbial, mouse, rat for kids pets. Hell get a chinchilla they are super cool and no bathing required just a jar of chinchilla dust is needed.
I was thinking a Canary or something, a cute small animal that wouldn't take up a lot of space.
I won't pay 5k for something that can go nuts.
