A proper fit for your kid's backpack
It's back to school time again, and that means it's time for the annual message about the bad things backpacks can do to your kid's back.
I generally tend to brush off such warnings as hysterical. But, honestly, have you looked at your kid's backpack lately? More to the point: Have you looked at your kid's hunched back when he's trying to lug that thing around?
So I'm finally breaking down and sharing some tips from the American Physical Therapy Association about how your kid should wear his backpack. Tip Number One: Use both straps. Let's see how that one goes over with my two high-schoolers.
And let's hope that students soon will be using e-textbooks; so much easier to lug those around.
Meantime, you and your kids should take a look at this video, also from the APTA, about proper backpack use. It's actually kind of cute.
