Books bad for kids, say experts

As your little one heads off to school you may daydream about your little one someday becoming a surgeon, lawyer or search engine giant. But experts say all those books are bad! At least for your kids back. 13K kids were treated last year for back injuries due to their heavy backpacks. So what's a dad to do? Burn the books? Well, if you have a whole lotta gumption, encourage your school to get into the cloud and deliver homework and books via PDF files. Many bookmakers are offering schools digital versions to save the trees and your kids back, not to mention the expense of printing and shipping. But aside from changing the system, a little common sense goes a long way. Encourage your little one only to bring home what they need. It will save their little backs, and is a great opportunity to start teaching common sense. Want more tips? Check it... StumbleUpon Pin It Now!
