Lands End Backpacks

Have you ever bought one? How did it hold up? How long did it last? How old are your kids, or the person who used it? I saw in a catalog that they have ones for young kids, all the way up to college. I suppose it is for durability for the big books and all. I was considering buying them for my kids this year, a high schooler and middle schooler, but wanted to know what you thought of them. I did buy Swiss Gear in the past and the last one lasted about 3 years but I liked the different colors and patterns that Lands End offers.

7 Years Old Fears

My son is going on 8 years old and he is scared to do anything alone. He has this fear that is beyond control. He can't go upstairs to use the bathroom (there is only 6 steps to get upstairs.) He can't get himself dressed, or anything because there is no one with him and he is terrified to go anywhere in the house a lone. I've had to send my little 5 year old daughter with him to do anything. I've tried to play it tough by making him stand on the stairs telling him to stay put till he's ready to get upstairs (he would cry and scream,...
