With so many different backpacks to choose from, you may have trouble finding one for your young child. While your child might wish to showcase his personal style, safety and organization are important as well.
As far as organization goes, look for backpacks that offer multiple compartments. You want to have space for books, papers and writing utensils to give your child his best chance at success.
Finally, remember that wearing a backpack can take a toll on the body. Ensure that your child has packed a backpack in a way that distributes weight evenly to prevent neck and shoulder injuries.
Skip out on messenger bags and shoulder bags that hang on one shoulder. These do not shift weight naturally and evenly across the body.
