If there's any back-to-school blues consolation prize, it's the promise of a fresh (in both newness AND style) backpack.
A few of our kids have carried various Burton bags over the years and we've found they never technically need replacing. A minor miracle if you've ever seen what children do to backpacks. Still, every other year or so we'll shell out for a new one just because.
This year, our kids are in luck, because the Marvel Youth Day Hiker is our pick for best backpack. It's Burton's kid-friendly version of their most versatile school to snow pack, upgraded with colorful Marvel Comics graphics. It's an explosion of pop-culture fun that will also hide inevitable kid grime.

Bullying can have long term impact on mental health. These days parents don’t just have to watch for traditional bullying such as physical violence, taunts and social exclusion, we also have to monitor for cyber-bullying. If bullying happens, how can you help?
If you had asked someone this time last year to explain “social distancing,” what would they have said? As we all know, adults weren’t the only ones who had to make adjustments when the pandemic began: Kids around the world were thrust into remote schooling situations, moved playdates exclusively to video calls, and were encouraged to wear face masks in public.
