I remember having a very heavy back-pack as a kid, but back pain? I didn't get back pain until I was in my 30s, after having moved my furniture several hundred miles a few times, and I wasn't even the healthy and fit type back in school. In other words, I find it extremely hard to believe that 75% of teenagers suffer from back-pain, nope, just don't believe it. It sounds like absolute nonsense.
(1) Clean our your child's backpack every night (amazing what you'll learn from doing that). (2) Turn off the TV. (3) Turn off the TV. (4) Turn off the TV. (5) Assign your kids chores to do when they are home. (6) Turn off the TV. (7) Fix healthy meals and eat around the table, taking with them, not watching TV.
Mrs. D back when you oma was alive they still had a majority of country side...Even if you have shots for different diseases you can still get them. Mom caught meningitis and almost died- even with the shot.
Biggest threat to your children is Liberal Teachers indoctrinating them to wonderful government. Any teacher should have to work in the private sector for 5 years.
I'm certain they will cause the rest of us issues too. as in increased traffic. They'll spread those germs around like the little carriers they are.
forget about those things ! kids today has to worry about getting shot !
No lockers here til middle school and they are 25 dollars for the year. First come first serve too. In High school were I live there are not enough lockers for students. So they let Sr get first crack and then on down the line. Where I went to HS you had to share 2-3 people a locker..... As for sending kids to school sick Mrs.D... there is strict attendances rules were I live. So keeps my kids out when sick is not an option unless they are very ill. Miss more then 5 days a semester mom and dad can go to jail here.
Of course kids spend more time sitting around. Have you seen how much homework a kid in elementary gets these days? By the time they finish, it's bedtime.
Wow that is sad, it's not their fault. If the parents wood make there lunch and cook health foods. We would not have this problem, wake up parents your children are eating all GMO.
