Any teens out there concerned about the amount of weight carried in their school bag? As a school nurse, I notice some students from the elementary through high school level carrying very heavy bags. I notice it affects their posture, and sometimes, their ability to use a shoulder well. I feel a good recommendation is not to exceed 10 % of their body weight. Please let me know what you think. Thank you.
