Reflections On A Child's Bedroom

A child's bedroom should be a direct reflection of who they are and where they are heading. It should be a place that is safe and inviting to the child, yet inspirational at the same time. There should be some kind of reflection of a spiritual nature within the room, no matter how subtle it may be.

A simple painting of a church, as seen through a child's eyes, hung up on the wall is an example of all it would take to keep your child connected with a higher power while in the room. You don't need to overstate the fact and there does not have to be a large overbearing artifact or wall hanging to state the obvious.

God will be a part of your child's upbringing and a subtle reminder in your child's bedroom is all that is necessary. It is also comforting to know that there is a certain presence in the room when your child closes his eyes and falls to sleep every night.

Keeping the room organized
While it is certainly necessary to expect some messes in the room, it is important to keep the room as organized as possible. One of the things that can occur with children is they aren't sure where everything is kept. Make certain that you have the room organized so that when a mess is made your child knows where to things get put when it is time to put things back.

Give space
If there isn't enough space in the room you can open up the area by replacing 2 single beds with twin size bunk beds. You can also shift the furniture around to make it appear more spacious. Twin size bunk beds are available as well with a futon at the bottom for added space.

When all of these elements are combined you'll find that you have a more settled child or children to deal with. When you consider how much time your child will be spending in his bedroom you’ll understand why it needs to be set up just so for the child's future development.
