Children should take regular breaks because the longer people sit in a certain position the more they slump. Slumping is a key contributor to back pain and headaches, but it also causes neck tension that can affect blood flow and oxygen to the brain.  One researcher summarised the results of 558 previous studies on this topic between 1966 and 2005 and concluded that the most consistent finding

The studies, which involved taking measurements of spinal angles and curvatures, found that wearing a backpack on just one shoulder increases upper back pain, lower back pain, spinal curvatures, and stress on the shoulders and neck.  What children do during the adolescent years can have a pronounced effect on

Children were given an MRI scan without a backpack on, and then with a backpack on, and

Absolutely they can. More and more kids are using laptops, tablets and smart phones than ever before. The real problem is the LENGTH OF TIME that these devices are used.
