I can't believe the size of my child’s backpack! Backpacks are being used by kids to carry everything, but can often cause problems when they are too heavy and fall apart. Children should be using a lightweight pack with padded shoulders and a waist belt and using them on BOTH sides of their shoulders to prevent back problems and bad posture. Children should never be carrying more than 15% of their body weight in their backpack.
The Walk for Maryland's Children was great! I loved the family fair and all the activities and free things they had to give away. My kids loved it!
