BACK TO SCHOOL TIP: Does your child know the correct way to pick up and wear his or her backpack? Did you know that picking up a backpack the proper way can help your child avoid back injuries?

As with any heavy weight, they should bend at the knees and grab the pack with both hands when lifting it to the shoulders. They should also wear both straps! If you ever notice your child struggling to get his or her backpack on or off or leans forward to carry it, they are most likely wearing it incorrectly and the straps should be adjusted.
