 Survey Shows Teenagers are Pretty Lazy

A new survey published by The Children's Society has found that most teenagers have no idea on how to shop for essential items.

"We want to see all local authorities delivering services to prevent excessive caring impacting on children's well-being, education and childhoods," said Children's Society spokeswoman Jenny Frank. "More needs doing to protect child carers."

The survey was commissioned to show the stark contrast between an estimated 175,000 young children who care for sick relatives and normal teenagers who cannot complete routine tasks.

The survey also found that most 16-year-olds had never cleaned a bathroom and many teens could not cook a meal, while only one in 10 has ever done the family shopping for weekly requirements.
