Personalized preschool backpacks: are they a good idea?

I do not think they are a good idea because most of them have the child's name on the outside of the backpack in a visible place. A stranger could easily read your child's name and call for them. Some young children will come to an adult who knows their name and may be tricked by the adult. The child may think the adult works at the school since the adult knew the child's name.

If I personalize my child's backpack I will put the name on a spot that is not visible to other people when my child is wearing the backpack.

    I was going to say this in my post but most preschoolers are not alone nor do they walk alone to school.
