What can I do about heavy backpacks of my child?

Heavy backpacks

In order to minimize the stress on the back and shoulders, evenly distribute the contents with heavy items to the center of the pack. A padded waist strap is recommended to keep the weight of the pack near the body and to prevent it from swinging back and forth. Avoid large backpacks as there is a tendency to overload them.
