Posture Perfect Getting Kids to Straighten Up

By Lisa B. Samalonis

Rebecca Dalton of Sicklerville, N.J., worries that her 7-year-old son, Jake, is developing poor posture habits that will stay with him for the rest of his life. "I try to remind him to sit properly when he has computer time in our home office, but he forgets when he gets involved in the program," Dalton says. "Then when he plays X-Box, he slumps on the couch for an hour or more."
