4 Your Health: Coping with a sick pet; kids not racing to adulthood

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Believe it or not, kids today are not growing up faster than they used to.

That's according to surveys of over eight million adolescents from the mid-1970's until now.

Research revealed, teens today are less likely to work, drive, date, drink alcohol, and have sex,  than those in previous decades. That trend was consistent among all races, socio-economic status, and region of the country.

Researchers say the decline may be linked to the time teens spend online.

Mental toll from sick pet

A new study suggests caring for a sick pet may be emotionally taxing.

Researchers from Kent State University found owners of chronically ill animals were more likely to have depression and anxiety than those with healthy pets. This higher burden also impaired the caregiver's quality of life and ability to function.
