As school approaches, so do the thoughts of kids carrying huge backpacks filled with books. These backpacks can weigh over thirty pounds when filled with books! For many children, this amount of weight can be harmful if not carried properly. Thus, a properly fitted backpack is a must. Be sure that the backpack your child gets evenly distributes the weight on both sides and that your child wears it over BOTH shoulders!
