Health Benefits of Having Pets For Your Children

Feel like you need to add a pet to your family? Or feeling like your family wouldn't be complete without your Prized Pet? New studies have shown that having pets can actually have health benefits for children.

Not only do pets help keep your children more active and give them someone to play with but, "studies show that children who grow up in households with dogs have a lower risk for developing autoimmune illnesses like asthma and allergies," according to the New York Times.
