The Whiskers & Whiskey Silent Auction and Gala is coming up this coming Sunday. Y3K Tutor In Your Home has joined up with The Cat Connection of Waltham, MA to help with this important fundraiser. Our tutoring and test preparation donation will be featured so make sure you look for it. The money raised goes directly to help lost and abandoned cats. It is used to provide food, veterinary care and a safe haven until The Cat Connection can match each cat with a loving permanent home. Your bids on the Y3K Tutor In Your Home auction donation makes this all possible.

Do your kids do their schoolwork on a laptop while sitting on a sofa? Unfortunately most sofas are too soft and do not give proper back support while using a laptop. The best tip Y3K Tutor In Your Home has for you is to simply avoid sitting on a couch while using a laptop. Students often get neck and back pain due to long periods of time on their laptops sitting on sofas. Although stores do sell laptop stands specifically to be used on a sofa, they are still not as good for the body as sitting properly on a chair using a desk or table.
Putting a laptop on a table or desk when doing a Zoom meeting can cause a student’s neck to protrude forward and downward to see the screen. The goal is to not slouch to look at the screen. The easy solution is to put some boxes on the table or desk and then put the laptop on the boxes. Align the screen so that your child’s eyes are looking straight at the upper 1/3 of the screen.
Does your student do their laptop schoolwork while sitting on a sofa? Next time we will take a closer look at how safe that position is for the neck and back.
Do your kids have neck and back pain from remote learning because their laptops are too low? Here is a great way to make your own laptop stand easily while saving money. All you have to do is get an empty 3 ring binder and put the laptop on it so keyboard is slanted downward and the screen is raised on top of the rings. The larger the rings, the better it is to put less stress on your child’s neck without compromising their hand typing position.
What should your student do when using a laptop in a Zoom meeting to not put stress on the upper back and neck? Check back here soon for the easy solution.
