Yes they do. They are very friendly and social. Make sure to purchase your parakeets from a place like Petco, because there birds are vaccinated and tested for stds. They make great pets for families with small children, and some what low maintenance..

I have had parakeets since I was pretty young. I would say your child has to be old enough to have the responsibility to care for the bird and also to not be rough with it. Birds are very delicate animals. One of my favorite pets I ever had was a parakeet and he lived about 8 years. They make great pets!

If the child is responsible enough to know how to handle the bird and make sure the bird is fed at the right time everyday and always has water, parakeets are lovely pets for kids. But keep in mind that they will need their parents' help to teach them how to feed them, how to handle them, etc. It's best to do a lot of research before getting a parakeet so you know what all you need to buy and how to take care of one properly. Hope this helps!
