As with any heavy object, your child should bend at the knees and grab a backpack with both hands when lifting it.
Your child's backpack should weigh less than 15 percent of his body weight.
Use your bathroom scale to measure the maximum backpack load so your child can know what it should feel like.
Tell your children to wash their hands for as long as it takes them to sing their ABCs, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" or the "Happy Birthday" song.
They should use hand sanitizer for the best results. Soap with warm water is a good second option if their hands are visibly dirty or after using the restroom.
If you think your child is sick, it is best to keep him home from school.
The older your child is, and the more he understands about how to minimize passing germs to others, it may be OK to send him to school if he isn't feeling well, unless he has a fever.
Two weeks to a month before the start of the school year, start shifting the time your child gets out of bed in the morning.
Start with the usual time he is waking up and gradually move the time earlier about 30 minutes every other day.
Turn off the TV and have a set time when the cell phone is turned off.
Studies show that the more electronics in the adolescent's bedroom, the more likely they will get insufficient sleep at night.
