Why You Need To Watch Your Kids Backpack


Why You Need To Watch Your Kids Backpack

This week, I've noticed the kids struggling under the weight of their school bags. Thing 2 especially is leaning forward substantially in order to just walk from the car to class.

It occurred to me that this might not be okay.

Turns out I was right. 

Which doesn't happen often.

Anyway, a little research later and I found this great infographic that spells out the dangers of incorrect backpack wearing and the right things to do. I was especially interested in the fact that the back should be no more that 10-15% of the child's body weight. Ours are way more so that changes today.

I hope you find it useful.
