Back 2 School: Practicing Backpack Safety

Backpacks are a school necessity for most school children. The American Academy of Pediatrics gives us ways to insure that you and your child utilize the backpack in the safest kid friendly manner.

  • Choose a backpack with wide, padded shoulder straps and a padded back.
  • Pack light. Organize the backpack to use all of its compartments. Pack heavier items closest to the center of the back. The backpack should never weigh more than 10 to 20 percent of your child’s body weight.
  • Always use both shoulder straps. Slinging a backpack over one shoulder can strain muscles.
  • If your school allows, consider a rolling backpack. This type of backpack may be a good choice for students who must tote a heavy load. Remember that rolling backpacks still must be carried up stairs, and they may be difficult to roll in snow.

And don’t forget to attend the Back 2 School Expo on Saturday, August 13th from 10AM-3PM at the Seminole Towne Center Mall.
