The fol- lowing safety and transi- tion suggestions are list- od with permission from ~d~i~ource, the Ameri- can Academy of Pediat- rics. MAKING THE FIRST DAY EASIER Remind your child that she is not the only student who is a bit uneasy about the first day of school. Teachers know that students are anxious and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfort- able as possible, • Point out the positive aspects of start- ing school: It will be fun. She'll see old friends and meet new ones. Refresh her positive memories about previous years, when she may have re- turned home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time. • Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your young- ster can walk to school or ride with on the bus. If you feel it is appropriate, drive your child (or walk with her) to school and pick her up on the first day. BACKPACK SAFETY • Choose a back- pack with wide, padded shoulder straps and a padded back. • Pack light. Orga- nize the backpack to use all of its compartments. Pack heavier items clos- est to the center of the back. The backpack should never weigh more than 10 to 20 percent of the your child's body weight. Always use both shoulder straps. Sling- ing a backpack over one shoulder can strain mus- cles. Consider a rolling backpack. This type of backpack may be a good choice for students who must tote a heavy load. Remember that rolling backpacks still must be carried up stairs, and they may be difficult to roll in snow. TRAVELING TO AND FROM SCHOOL Review the basic rules with your youngster: School Bus • If your child's school bus has lap/shoul- der seat belts, make sure your child uses one at all times when in the bus. If your child's school bus does not have lap/shoul- der belts, encourage the school to buy or lease buses with lap/shoulder belts. Wait for the bus to stop before approach- ing it from the curb. • Do not move around on the bus. • Check to see that no other traffic is coming before crossing. • Make sure to always remain in clear view of the bus driver. • Children should always board and exit the bus at locations that provide safe access to the bus or to the school build- ing. Car • All passengers should wear a seat belt and/or an age- and size- appropriate car safety seat or booster seat. • Your child should ride in a car safety seat with a harness as long as possible and then ride in a belt-positioning booster seat. Your child is ready for a booster seat when she has reached the top weight or height allowed for her seat, her shoul- ders are above the top harness slots, or her ears have reached the top of the seat. • Your child should ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until the ve- hicle's seat belt fits prop- erly (usually when the child reaches about 4' 9" in height and is between 8 to 12 years of age). This means that the child is tall enough to sit against the vehicle seat back with her legs bent at the knees and feet hanging down and the shoulder belt lies across the middle of the chest and shoulder, not the neck or throat; the lap belt is low and snug across the thighs, and not the stomach. • All children un- der 13 years of age should ride in the rear seat of ve- hicles. If you must drive more children than can fit in the rear seat (when carpooling, for example), move the front-seat pas- senger's seat as far back as possible and have the child ride in a booster seat if the seat belts do not fit properly without it.
