Tipsy Tuesday (#132)

They're kids, not pack mules...

Tip #132

Don't load 'em up...

A child's backpack should weigh no more than 10 to 15 percent of their weight. For the average 8 year old, that means no heavier than a 5lb. bag of sugar.

I'm thinking that girl in the picture is carrying more than she weighs in her back pack.

Good tip, STACIE! My long lost friend....
