I bet you have seen some very small-bodied primary school kids carrying overweight bags to and from school. Most of the times, those bags are usually full of unnecessary filled-up exercise books.
Gradually, these heavy bags affect the backbone of a child and could result to severe back pains as a result of an affected spinal cord. Well, I came across a very heart-touching eye-opener by an aunt whose nephew had just undergone a surgery to rectify a back problem after carrying an overloaded school-bag for some time.
So, dear parents, you need to check for unnecessary material in your kids bag so that you lessen the ‘burden’ they carry and also avoid the risk of such a sad case.
