TO AVOID THAT THIS PROBLEMATIC IS REPEATED DURING THE NEW
SCHOOL YEAR, WE REMEMBER PARENTS THAT AT THE TIME OF CHOOSING BACKPACKS MUST TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE SIZE OF THE MATERIAL TO BE CARRIED (THE FOLDER AS HEIGHT AND OF FUND WHICH WILL OCCUPY 3 -4 BOOKS) AND THE CHILD’S HEIGHT (THE BACKPACK MUST NOT BE BIGGER THAN YOUR BACK).
In addition, it is preferable to choose those that have 2 wide and cushioned tapes, possibly with another belt strap for the waist, and also have padded the area of contact with the back.
On the other hand, when organizing, parents should check that their children only carry the school supplies they will need that day, and avoid carrying unnecessary items such as toys, wooden cases, etc. In addition, they should help their children organize the backpack so that the larger books are placed in the part that comes in contact with the back, and the smaller ones on the outside.
It is also important that the child gets used to putting the backpack, “hanging” from the table, and not from the ground (to avoid back twisting), and learn to adjust the straps so that it is just above the area Gluteal
On the other hand, if the child has no alternative and must transport more than 10% of his body mass daily, it is recommended to buy a “wheeled suitcase” that can be pushed instead of dragged or, if not available A handle that is extensible enough so that the student can drag it without forcing the shoulder back, without being forced to have the elbow fully stretched. In addition, it is important that you have a good bearing and that the child knows that he has to cuddle the cart ahead when going up or down stairs.
